LACEY, Wash. (AP) -- The Thurston County coroner has identified a 23-year-old man fatally shot in a Lacey, Wash., home where two other young men were wounded.

Coroner Gary Warnock said Tuesday the man who died in Monday's shooting was Joshua Nelson of Lacey. The coroner says autopsy results should be available Wednesday.

Lacey police say the other two men shot and wounded were able to flee the home and call 911 from a neighbor's house. Police Cmdr. Joseph Upton says they were treated at a local hospital and released.

There have been no arrests. Police say they're seeking a slender man in his 20s who was seen fleeing the area in a dark hoodie, jumping over backyard fences.

Lacey is a suburb of the state capital and 60 miles south of Seattle.
