Four people have been taken into custody on suspicion of murder after police found a body in a garage in the 75th Street East in Bonney Lake.

According to police, the deceased man is a black male in his mid-20s. Police are investigating the death as a homicide. The suspects have been booked into Pierce County Jail.

Police believe the incident to be drug-related.

According to Bonney Lake Public Information Officer Todd Green, police were called to the 19200 block of 75th Street East at about 4 p.m. Thursday for a report of gunshot wound.

When police arrived at the house, they located several firearms and blood around the house and found the deceased male in the garage with a gunshot wound.
