There were two shootings at Min Sik Kim’s Spanaway convenience store early last year — one for which he was sentenced Friday. First, a man trying to rob the shop shot and seriously injured Kim’s wife. That’s where Kim’s head was about a month later, when he fought with and killed a shoplifter trying to flee the store, Kim and his family said. “He wanted to stop running the business, but he had no choice ...,” Kim’s wife, Seul A Lim, told Pierce County Superior Court Judge John Hickman.
A man who fired a fatal shot during an East Tacoma shootout was sentenced Friday to nearly eight years in prison. Andre David Stewart pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter for the death of 23-year-old Marquel Bradley, who investigators don’t believe was involved in the shootout. Pierce County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Arend gave 24-year-old Stewart a low-end sentence of seven years, 11 months in prison.
A man accused of fatally stabbing a man as part of a gang initiation in Tacoma was in court Wednesday. Juan Jose Gaitan Vasquez, 26, pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder at arraignment in Pierce County Superior Court. He recently was extradited from California. He and three others have been charged for the death of Samuel Cruces-Vazquez, 25. Court Commissioner Meagan Foley set Gaitan’s bail at $3 million.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
