Deputies searching for suspect after argument leads to deadly hit-and-run in Pierce County

Pierce County detectives are searching for a driver accused of killing a man with his car after an argument Saturday afternoon.

Deputies were called to the report a homicide at 106th St. and Ainsworth Ave. S.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department, witnesses said two men were arguing before one of them got into his car and then ran over the other man. The victim died at the scene.

"This is just crazy. It's unbelievable that we had someone intentionally run over someone after just an argument," said Sergeant Darren Moss with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.

Jackie Hall says the victim is her daughter's boyfriend. She says she raced out to the crime scene to be with her family.

"It just hasn’t all quite hit us all yet. He was just a beautiful person," said Hall.

Investigators say the man who died was in his forties. They did not release any information about the suspect or the car he fled the scene in. Investigators say they know who the suspect is and they are working to bring him into custody.

Meanwhile, Tacoma Police said they were investigating two homicides earlier the same day.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
