A man was arrested in Kent on Wednesday night for the murder of a soldier stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Police said Marshall Wilson was booked on murder in the second degree after Da'Quan Foster was shot and killed early Sunday morning.
Foster and his wife were shot following an argument outside the Latitude 84 night club on South Hosmer St. in Tacoma at 1:40 a.m. Officer Loretta Cool said Foster suffered several gunshot wounds as he and his wife fled from the attacker(s).
Foster died later at the hospital. His wife was also wounded. Her injuries are not life threatening.
His former squad leader, Sgt. Brian Stephenson, said Foster will be missed dearly.
“He was very mature for his age in how much he cared for his family. He had a very strong feeling toward his family," Stephenson said.
Foster was originally from New York state. He was a father to a young child.
According to Stephenson, Foster’s favorite saying was: "Yesterday was the past. Tomorrow is the future. You can’t predict the future, so you have to live for today."
Wilson is expected in court Thursday in Pierce County.
