Man shot in chest in Tacoma drive-by

A man was shot in the chest in a drive-by shooting Thursday night in Tacoma, police said.

He was hit from a vehicle described as a maroon four-door SUV with two men inside shortly before 10 p.m. in the 3600 block of East L Street, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

The man shot was taken to the hospital. His age and condition were not immediately available.

About 10 minutes before the shooting, a woman reported that two men in their teens or early 20s pointed a gun at her and ordered her out of her vehicle in the 2300 block of Yakima Court, Cool said.

The men then fled in the woman’s red Jeep Liberty, according to police.

Cool said it’s possible the incidents are related, but that police had nothing specific that connected the two.

Further details were not immediately available.
