TACOMA, WA - Today Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist charged Adrian Alvarez, 22, Joshua Jazz Soria, 24, and Jaden Gene Montgomery Fisher, 20 with multiple charges, including murder in the first and second degree.

The defendants allegedly killed Robert Doss II in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood in a retaliatory gang shooting on July 18.

“We are committed to ending the cycle of gang violence,” said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. “Gang violence in Pierce County is down dramatically, but there is still work to do.”

According to reports, on the night of July 18, Robert Doss and a female were sitting in a car on the side of the road near South 14th Street and South M Street in Tacoma, when a small, light colored SUV pulled up on the driver’s side.

The driver, later identified as Montgomery-Fisher, asked Doss and his passenger, “Where you from?”

When Doss responded, “Hilltop,” the SUV pulled slightly forward, and a passenger in the backseat, identified as Alvarez, opened fire on the female and Doss.

Both victims were taken to St. Joseph’s medical center. Doss was shot through both lungs and his heart and died at the hospital. The female in the car was shot in the hand and was treated at the hospital.

Police apprehended all three at the home of Montgomery-Fisher. Montgomery Fisher spoke to police and reported that the three were gang affiliated and that the shooting was in retaliation for a shooting of a fellow gang member in May.

Bail for Alvarez is set at $2,000,000. Bail for Soria and Montgomery-Fisher was set at $1,000,000.

Charges are only allegations and a person is presumed innocent unless he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
