TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A woman was shot and killed in Tacoma and authorities later apprehended her boyfriend, who they say had fled to Canada.

KOMO reports police responded to a call about 4:15 a.m. Monday in the South Hill neighborhood.

Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said authorities searched for a 26-year-old man in connection with the shooting. The man allegedly stole a van from a business in Puyallup after the shooting.

He was later arrested by RCMP in Canada after illegally crossing the border. The Sheriff’s Office said he was located at a hospital in Surrey, British Columbia ran from officers and was then arrested after a short pursuit.
