ROY, Wash. – Pierce County sheriff's detectives are investigating what led a woman to allegedly shoot and kill her boyfriend Friday night.

It happened in the 32300 block of 68th Avenue S. in Roy.

A woman in her late 40's shot her boyfriend, 51, and killed him, said sheriff's department spokesman Ed Troyer. The woman is in custody for investigation of homicide-domestic violence.

An adult daughter of the victim called 911.

It's believed the woman's 13-year-old daughter may have witnessed some of the incident.

Deputies say the shooting may have stemmed from an incident earlier in the day in Yelm.
