Police in Tacoma, Washington arrested a 24-year-old woman in connection with the shooting of an unidentified man as they allegedly walked into a nearby Starbucks shop together, KOMO-TV reported.
The incident occurred early Tuesday afternoon in Kent, a suburb about 19 miles away from Tacoma. The woman allegedly fled the scene after shooting the man in the face before turning herself in at 1:25 p.m. on Tuesday. The victim was taken to a local hospital, and he is expected to survive.
“They were coming as customers, and as he opened the door, she pulled the weapon and opened fire,” Kent assistant police chief Derek Kammerzell told KOMO.
Witnesses reportedly came to the victim’s aid quickly, including one Army veteran who helped keep pressure on the wound while paramedics arrived, Another witness, Sam Labberton, told KOMO that the victim was responsive enough to help them gather information on the shooting despite bleeding from the mouth, nose and left ear.
“[We asked], ‘What’s your name, who did this, do you know her,'” Sam Labberton was quoted as saying. “And he was like, ‘Yes I do,’ threw me his phone, gave me his passcode and we got her name and gave it to the cops.”

‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
