PACIFIC, Wash. (Metro) -- A 19-year-old man is being questioned by detectives after police found a 13-year-old boy murdered in an apartment complex in Pacific early this morning.
Pacific Police Department spokeswoman Stephanie Shook said it is still early in the investigation and the circumstances surrounding the boy's killing are not clear.
Shook tells KING 5 News the situation began to unfold just after 3 a.m. when officers were called to the Cobble Court apartments on Ellingson Road.
