A 19-year-old woman has been charged with murder and assault in an east Tacoma street-corner shooting.
Tanya Owens pleaded innocent to the charges last week.
Chanthy Khong, 17, was killed Jan. 25 when three men leapt from a car at an intersection and opened fire on a group of youths, according to court documents. Fagalulu Filitaula, 13, was wounded but survived.
Owens is accused of driving the car. Prosecutors contend that she knew the three were armed and knew they intended to shoot someone.
Phillip E. Morales, 20, Willie L. Nobles, 18, and Kuame Umego Moore, 20, all have pleaded innocent to murder and assault charges in the case.
