Lacey police and Lacey Fire District 3 medics attempted to revive the man, but he died at the scene.
The two other people at the residence, a man and woman, were questioned by police. The 24-year-old man said he and McKinney had gotten into a fight — police later said they were fighting about an iPad and cellphone — then struggled over a gun that the man said was McKinney's. That man said he shot McKinney in self-defense.
The 24-year-old, Terell L. D. Doyle, was later arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and unlawful possession of heroin. A Thurston County Superior Court judge found probable cause for those charges and bail was set at $1 million.
As of Tuesday, Doyle remained in custody.
Lacey police can be reached at 360-459-4333, or South Sound Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
