Tacoma police are trying to figure out who opened fire on the vehicle Monday as it turned from South Washington Street onto South 50th Street.

“There was a car stopped at the same intersection and someone fired 8-9 rounds before fleeing down Washington,” police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

The drive-by shooting occurred about 11:15 a.m.

After the vehicle was struck, it hit two cars and a semi as it tried to get away.

It’s unclear why somebody shot at the car. Police said the victims were not cooperative.

The area near South Washington and South 50th streets was closed for more than two hours.
