Suspect in Custody After Neighborhood Sprayed With Bullets - U.S. News
A man who reportedly walked through a Tacoma, Wash., neighborhood spraying gunfire was taken into police custody after a standoff at his residence, Seattle TV station KING 5 reported.
Police had surrounded the home Tuesday afternoon, where the man with at least four high-powered weapons was holed up, a sheriff’s official told NBC News.
Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KING that the suspect was 67-year-old Mike McBee, a Vietnam veteran.
No injuries were reported, but Pierce County sheriff’s Detective Ed Troyer said several homes were hit by bullets in the neighborhood in Tacoma, about 30 miles of Seattle.
Troyer, speaking before the suspected was named, said the gunman was known to have “mental health issues” and was believed to have been drinking.
