The suspected shooter of a double homicide in Tacoma, Washington, may be responsible for a third fatal shooting nearby, Fox13 reported.
Paul Snider allegedly killed two men near 80th and Hosmer Street near the Bass Pro Shop on Monday morning.
Held in the Pierce County Jail, Snider has several charges pending against him, including double homicide aggravated manslaughter. During his arraignment, the prosecution said that Snider could face further charges in a different case.

After his arrest for the double homicide, court documents said Snider “admitted to being present at another homicide that occurred earlier in the year. In that earlier homicide, the victim was shot in the head.”
The documents further indicated that detectives familiar with the earlier homicide knew the shooter “had been identified as ‘Paul’.”
Court documents said a suspect was caught on a Bass Pro Shop security camera exiting the trailer, and “an alleged muzzle flash could be seen on the video.”
In addition, at least two homemade cameras gave a clear idea of what the suspect was wearing and who to look for. The documents say detectives used surveillance video to identify Snider as the suspect and arrested him just hours after the fatal shooting.

Tacoma Police Department Officer Shelbie Boyd said community videos and photos play an important role in solving these crimes. She urges people to continue to submit that information to the police.
“I can’t speak to how many cases have been resolved by community members and their home surveillance systems,” Boyd said. “That little piece of evidence, someone walking past your camera who just feels bad, or maybe it’s in that moment, that could be that little link we need to help a family get closure.”

Prosecutors said Snider had prior convictions, including one for residential burglary. They said he has had nine run-ins with police and has been booked into the Pierce County jail at least six times.
Snider’s next court hearing in the double homicide case is scheduled for December 21.
