The suspected gunman in a double homicide in Tacoma, Wash., could be responsible for a third dead shooting nearby, Fox13 reported.
Paul Snider reportedly killed two men near 80th and Hosmer Streets near the Bass Pro Shop on Monday morning.
Snider, who is being held in the Pierce County Jail, faces multiple charges including aggravated murder for double murder. During his arraignment, prosecutors said Snider could face additional charges on another case.

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

Officer Shelbie Boyd of the Tacoma Police Department said community videos and images play an important role in solving these crimes. She urges people to continue providing this information to the police.
“I can’t tell how many cases have been solved by community members and their home surveillance systems,” Boyd said. “That little bit of evidence – someone walking past your camera and feeling kinda wrong, or maybe it’s about that time – might be that one little connection we need to help a family find closure. “
