Wyatt Owens  Cause of Death

Wyatt was shot in the head on January 15 while driving near North Pearl Street and North 43rd Street, according to Kiro7. Police said he responded to a report that a car had crashed into a yard in the 4300 block of North Pearl Street. The person he called informed the police that they believed the driver had been shot. He was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

The teenager died from his injuries on January 20. “We are definitely worse off without him,” Jolley said. “Wyatt was brilliant, incredibly talented, he had so much raw potential.” Jolley also revealed that even though Wyatt’s life was cut short too soon, he made sure to have an impact even in death. Wyatt helped eight different people by donating his organs.

“When he got his license, he talked to his dad about being a donor and if he wanted to do something, he wanted to make sure he could give after he left,” Jolley said. Wyatt is survived by two sisters and his parents. Wyatt may have been involved in a race or road rage incident involving a dark four-door vehicle with tinted windows, according to Tacoma police.

However, Michael Owens, his father, disagrees. “Drugs weren’t involved, alcohol wasn’t involved, street racing wasn’t involved,” Owens said. “He had a motto: ‘low and slow,'” he added. “He’s like, ‘Man, I’ve got a target on my back. Every cop wants to give me a ticket, so I have to keep it low and slow,’ so that’s what he did.”

Owens claims his daughter saved a 4-year-old boy from drowning in American Lake when he was just 11, according to Fox 13 Seattle. According to his father, Owens never stopped offering help to anyone who asked for it. “I’m going to miss that, where he just puts his arm around someone and says, ‘Hey, it’s going to be okay, we’ll figure it out,'” the grieving father said.

Meanwhile, Tacoma police have yet to apprehend the shooter. “Wyatt deserves justice, he deserves justice, the people who did this to him deserve to be punished,” Jolley said. The family has created a GoFundMe page to help with funeral and medical expenses. Police urge anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards made the following statement in response to Owens’ death on January 20: “The pain felt when a young life is cut short is deep and wide. My condolences go out to the family and loved ones as well as the many others grieving throughout our community. This investigation is active and ongoing, and in the face of tragedy, we will not rest. This is a priority issue for us in Tacoma, and that is why that we have made significant investments in community security.
