Coroner Identifies Victims In Thurston County Shooting

LACEY, Wash. (AP) — The Thurston County coroner has identified the three people who were found dead Wednesday after a shooting near Lacey.

The three people were 36 year-old Gerald M. Berkey of Elma, Washington, 28 year-old Jackson L. Edens of Olympia, Washington, and 31 year-old Terron R. McGrath of Olympia.

Investigators are trying to determine if drug dealing played a role in the shooting that also left one man injured.

Thurston County Chief Deputy Dave Pearsall says investigators found half a pound of methamphetamine, heroin, thousands of dollars in cash and about half a dozen firearms in a travel trailer where the two men and a woman were found dead on Wednesday.
