Tacoma home shooting injures 1

Possible gang activity is behind a Tacoma shooting over the weekend that sent a 44-year-old woman to the hospital.

Police say more than 40 bullets were fired into the home where she was hit.

Sergeant Darren Moss tells KIRO 7 TV the shooting happened in the 1700 block of South 36th Street.

Tacoma police have not confirmed the motive behind Saturday’s shooting, or if it was related to a local gang.

The woman’s injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.

Employees at the Alderwood Water and Wastewater District claim a toxic work environment and mismanagement are taking a toll on their mental and physical health.

A records request from the Herald shows more emails concerned with McKinley’s management.

McKinley, who has held the job for nearly two years, has declined to comment on the allegations.

His contract is set to expire in September.

Board President Paul McIntyre says the board “has investigated and will continue to investigate” misconduct claims.
