2 teens, 1 man arrested in shooting death of 16-year-old Foss High School student

Police are investigating after a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed Wednesday in Tacoma. It's the city's tenth homicide so far this year -- the fifth involving a child.

On March 29 at 1:13 p.m., officers were called to reports of a shooting at the Lakeside Landing Apartments at S 12th St and S Mildred St.

When they arrived, they found an unresponsive person on the ground with several gunshot wounds, particularly to the neck and back. 

That person, later identified as 16-year-old Larry Darnell "Trae" Marshall III, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to court documents, Marshall texted a friend from a Sound Transit bus around 12:47 p.m. saying he was on his way. The two made plans to get food at a Fred Meyer.

He was shot only minutes later at 1:12 p.m. 

The 16-year-old was a student at Foss High School in Tacoma and was on the football team. 

A week after the shooting, Tacoma Police announced the arrest of three suspects in the case. 

On April 5, two 17-year-olds were arrested two miles apart in Tacoma in connection to the deadly shooting. A 28-year-old was taken into custody in Portland with the assistance of US Marshals. 

All three were booked for first-degree murder.

According to court documents, two suspects were seen on surveillance footage getting out of a vehicle and following Marshall shortly before opening fire. Court documents said a total of 33 expended casings were found at the scene. 

The two suspects who got out of the car (both of whom had guns in their hands, according to court documents) ran back into the waiting vehicle and the driver sped off.

A GoFundMe was started to support the boy's parents.

"No parents are prepared, nor should they be prepared, to bury their child. Trae was smart, funny, charismatic, and an amazing athlete. And yet, he was so much more than words could describe," said Leanna Bordner, Trae's cousin. "Our family is devastated, and our lives will never be the same without our baby boy."

The newly formed ‘Community Trauma Response Team’ was used for the first time since its inception. The team consists of 15 to 20 advocates who respond to traumatic situations to help with the community's emotional needs while Tacoma police and fire departments deal with the initial response.

"Our job is to be there, you know, for these families because often times when events like these happen, there’s retaliation and we want to prevent any form of retaliation and allow the law to be able to do their job," said James Watson, the Executive Commander of Tacoma Community Response Team.

This is a developing story. More information on the suspects and the shooting will be released as it becomes available.
