The Pierce County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the 20-year-old man found dead in his South End apartment earlier this week as Troyvon M. Taylor.
Taylor died of a gunshot wound to the head, the office reported.
Tacoma police are investigating Taylor’s death as a homicide. They have no suspects and no motive for the slaying.
He and a female relative lived in the apartment in the 7300 block of South Wilkeson Street. Family members who went to the apartment to check on the woman Tuesday found her OK but discovered Taylor dead, police reported.
Neighbors reported hearing gunfire in the apartment Sunday night but said they didn’t call police. Detectives talked to the woman but do not believe she’s a suspect in Taylor’s death.
