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.”

Trump’s ‘stupid’ call to Kemp ‘bordered on criminality’: Ex-Senate leader Harry Reid
On CNN Saturday, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) tore into President Donald Trump for his phone call demanding the governor of Georgia convene the legislature to overturn the election.
"Trump is out of touch with reality," said Reid. "The Republican secretary of state in Georgia has been very strong. Georgia is a state that is not going to allow this foolishness to continue. They had an election. They've proved it. They certified it. And I think that Trump is wasting his time. Georgia is not going to have its reputation ruined by some stupid damn thing that Trump is trying to do that is outside the realm of reality."
Trump has turned the GOP into the party of ‘cowards’ and ‘eunuchs’: Republican strategist
On MSNBC Saturday, Republicans strategist Rick Tyler tore into his party for allowing themselves to be used by outgoing President Donald Trump for his own ends.
"Rick, talk to me about this," said anchor Ali Velshi. "For those who are not Republicans or consider themselves conservatives, explain to me what you believe the motivation is in sitting and watching this Republican clown car with a seized engine and tires blowed out going off a cliff? Why would any Republican want this to happen? I get Jennifer's point that maybe Trump is more popular than some of them are, but there is life after Trump, and shouldn't Republicans who have had a political party for a very long time be thinking about that?"
CNN host abruptly ends interview with Georgia’s GOP head for continuing to spout election fraud claims
CNN host Martin Savidge called an abrupt end to an interview with the head of the Georgia Republican Party on Saturday morning after his guest continued to question the results of the 2020 presidential election in his state.
Appearing on CNN on Saturday morning, Republican David Shafer was repeatedly fact-checked by the host as he maintained that there was widespread fraud in Georgia that led to President Donald Trump's loss to former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Mr. Shaffer, do you believe that there is widespread voter fraud in Georgia?" the host asked.
"There are unquestionably problems with the election," the Republican shot back. "We filed a lawsuit yesterday that shows that thousands of votes were cast by inmates in prison, by people who don't live in the state."
