According to Deputies, Palmer was walking out of a 7-11 on 174th street and Pacific Avenue South when two people in separate cars were arguing and it escalated to a man opening fire. Pierce County has seen its fair share of tragedy this year, including 4 homicides in Spanaway and 16 homicides in the County.
