Gas station robbed: At about 4:39 a.m. near the 33800 block of 1st Avenue South, officers were dispatched to a gas station for a report of a robbery. A man demanded money from the employee. No weapons were seen and no threats were made.

Carjacked: At about 8:07 a.m. near the 33411 block of 22nd Avenue SW, a victim was carjacked in front of his house and forced to drive to a nearby apartment complex.

Arson: At about 7:09 a.m. near the 100 block of SW Campus Drive, officers responded with fire department personnel for a fire investigation. Investigators determined the fire had not occurred naturally or by simple accident. There is no suspect information.

Attempted basement burglary: At about 3:45 p.m. near the 29600 block of 7th Avenue SW, a victim returned home to find their basement window broken and subjects had entered their residence.

June 8

Gunshots heard, shells found: At about 12:57 a.m. near the 31800 block of Pacific Highway South, police heard three gunshots coming from the Bank of Hope parking lot. Police recovered three 9mm shell casings from the scene. Safe City cameras captured a black sedan leaving the area during the time of the gunshots, but were unable to pick up a license plate number. No leads at this time.

Pawn shop burglary: At about 2:41 a.m. near the 33012 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to a burglary in progress at the Cash America Pawn Shop. It was reported that three men drove a car through the front doors of the store. Officers saw the suspects inside the store with two vehicles waiting out front. One vehicle was able to escape the scene with two suspects, but the other suspect was arrested and booked into jail on charges of burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle out of Tacoma.

Fatal collision: At about 5:15 p.m. near the 37300 block of Pacific Highway South, officers were dispatched to a serious injury two-vehicle collision. The 83-year-old male driver of a full-size pickup truck pulling a fifth-wheel utility trailer was northbound on Pacific Highway South. That driver stopped to make a left turn, then a full-size pickup truck, driven by a 65-year-old NE Tacoma resident, collided with the rear of the trailer. Both vehicles sustained significant damage. The driver of the second vehicle died as a result of his injuries from the crash. The exact cause of the collision has yet to be determined, but impairment is not believed to be a contributing factor.
