Shots were fired early Sunday in Tacoma’s South End, but the attempted assailant didn’t get very far, according to Tacoma police.
Police were dispatched at 2:30 a.m. to the 8600 block of South Hosmer Street after a report of shots being fired and a description of the car driving away, spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
The vehicle got all of two blocks away to the north before a Pierce County sheriff’s deputy found it and pulled it over, Cool said.
The 19-year-old driver, the car’s only occupant, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault and drive-by shooting.
Nobody was injured in the incident.
