One man is dead and another man was being questioned after a shooting in Spanaway on Wednesday night.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said a homeowner called 911, saying he shot someone.

Police say the man told them a 29 year-old-man came to his home, armed with a hammer and was threatening him. He said they got into an argument that quickly escalated and ended with the homeowner shooting and killing the 29-year-old man.

KING 5 was told the 32-year-old homeowner is a soldier and was cooperating with detectives. He was being questioned but had not been arrested Wednesday night.

Investigators said the two men know each other.
