A man and woman, both in their 20s, were taken to a hospital in Tacoma Saturday night after they were shot in the legs during a robbery.
The suspects — two men — stole 20 pairs of high-end tennis shoes, Officer Loretta Cool said Sunday.
The man, 25, suffered a gunshot wound to his left leg; the woman, 24, was shot in the right leg. Both were taken to St. Joseph Medical Center for their injuries.
The suspects are still at large, Cool said. One is described as 6 feet tall and 300 pounds. The other is about 5-foot-6 and has a medium build, she said.
About 9 p.m. Saturday, the two suspects knocked on the door of an apartment in the 1700 block of South 84th Street. The man inside the apartment went to answer the door, while the woman went to the bathroom, Cool said.
The man who opened the door was shot immediately. The woman heard the shot and came out of the bathroom to see what was going on and was shot in the leg, too, Cool said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 911.
