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.”

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Seth Meyers plays hilarious fictional Democratic debate — featuring all 20 candidates on stage at the same time

Published

The host of NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" thought his network did a good job hosting the first round of Democratic debates among 2020 hopefuls, but his "one complaint" was that there weren't enough candidates on stage.

The rules established by the Democratic National Committee required NBC to host two nights of debates, with ten candidates on the stage each night.

Meyers wanted all twenty, so he presented Late Night's version of the debates, where Meyers would pretend to moderate the debate and then splice out-of-context video of the candidates to make it appear as if they were answering his question.

"What’s going on with you? I saw you in the makeup room. Your energy is off. You seem down. Is this getting to you, what happened today? With what the president tweeted and how people are reacting?" Lemon asked his colleague.

"Is it getting to me? It hits close to home, to be honest. My grandparents were afraid of people like Trump. Ironically, they grew up very close to one another," Cuomo answered, recounting his family's story of seeking acceptance in America. "It hits close to home."
