Tacoma police were investigating Monday night after two men were shot in a street.
The 35-year-old victim is expected to survive. His 18-year-old nephew is in critical condition.
Officers were called just before 10 p.m. to the area near East 32nd and East R streets after witnesses reported the shooting.
The victims were taken to an area hospital to be treated for non life-threatening injuries.
Police used a K-9 to search the area for a gunman and found a suspect. He was booked into Pierce County Jail on three counts of first-degree assault.
The gun was recovered.
It was not immediately known what led up to the shooting.
