TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A teenager shot on a Tacoma street earlier this week has died.

The News Tribune reports the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as 18-year-old Chase Seibold, of Tacoma, and said he died of a shotgun wound to the face.

Seibold’s 35-year-old uncle was also shot but is expected to survive.

Pierce County prosecutors have charged Wesley Armstead with attempted murder, two counts of assault and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with Monday’s shooting.

Armstead pleaded not guilty and is being held on $1 million bail.

The charges are expected to be amended because the teen died.

Police do not believe Armstead knew Seibold or his uncle, and that the shooting was something of a misunderstanding after Armstead thought they were yelling at him.
