Gunman arrested after teenager and man shot in Tacoma

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.
