The photo showed men who shot up a car after a bar fight. Somebody recognized them

Two men who brawled in a Lakewood tavern and then followed the victims down the street and shot up their car were arrested Wednesday.

Police were able to identify them thanks to a tipster who recognized them from surveillance photos posted on the department’s Facebook page.

One suspect was arrested about 5 a.m. at a Graham home. The second was taken into custody about 7:30 a.m. in Parkland.

The drive-by shooting took place about 11:20 p.m. Jan. 27 outside Rollie’s Tavern, 2404 112th Street South.

Two men, who were disturbing other patrons, got into a fight with some people and then followed them to their cars.

When they reached the intersection near 112th Street South and South Tacoma Way, police said the gunman fired at least five shots.

No one was injured.

A 31-year-old man was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree drive-by shooting and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

The second suspect was booked for second-degree rendering criminal assistance and first-degree conspiracy to commit assault.

Prosecutors will decide Thursday whether to charge them.
