Paul Snider allegedly killed two men near 80th and Hosmer Street near Bass Pro Shop on Monday morning.
Held in Pierce County Jail, Snider faces multiple charges, including aggravated murder for the double homicide. At his arraignment, the prosecution said Snider may face additional charges for another case.

After his arrest for the double homicide, court documents say 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 stated that detectives familiar with the previous homicide were aware that the shooter “has been identified as ‘Paul’.”
Court documents say a suspect was caught on a Bass Pro Shop security camera exiting the trailer, and “an alleged muzzle flash can be seen on the video.”
Additionally, at least two home cameras gave a clear idea of what the suspect was wearing and who to search for. The documents say detectives used surveillance video to identify Snider as a suspect, arresting him just hours after the fatal shots were fired.

Tacoma Police Department Officer Shelbie Boyd said community video and photos play an important role in solving these crimes. She urges people to continue to submit this information to the police.
“I can’t say how many cases were solved by community members and their home monitoring systems,” Boyd said. “That little piece of evidence – someone walking past your camera and feeling a little bad, or maybe that’s around then – might be that little link we need to help a family turn the page.”
