Victim’s foot amputated after carjacking and shooting outside Tacoma pub


A Spanaway man is still recovering in the hospital after having his left foot and part of his leg amputated following a carjacking.  40-year-old Shaun Williams was leaving Billy B’s pub on South 56th Street Tacoma at about 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 27 when Tacoma Police say a suspect approached him while he was sitting in his car and shot him in the ankle. The suspect then stole Williams’ 1995 Honda Civic.  It was found the next day in Lakewood. Tacoma police have not released a description of the suspect. 

Williams’ family says he was at Billy B’s pub that night to play pool, which he loves. His sister says doctors are trying to control an infection and that he will need another surgery. They are cleaning his wound and replacing the wraps three times a day. Williams has a 13-year-old daughter and has no medical insurance right now. His family says he is a hard working man who is between jobs but earned money by detailing cars.  

His family has set up a fund to help him with his medical expenses.  You can go to any Wells Fargo bank and ask to donate to the ‘Shaun Williams Benefit Fund’.
