Shawn Kemp arrested and booked in connection with a drive-by shooting

Former NBA all-star forward  Shawn Kemp was arrested and booked in a Pierce county jail in Washington in connection with a drive-by shooting.

Tacoma police said an altercation between occupants of two vehicles near the Tacoma mall led to shots being fired early yesterday afternoon. 

According to a release from the police department on social media no injuries were reported, and one of the cars fled the scene.

A gun was recovered, and an investigation is ongoing.

Online records for Pierce county show that the 53 year old Kemp was booked on a felony drive-by-shooting charge at 2-minutes to-6 local time, about four hours after the incident.

Kemp during his playing career was a six-time NBA all-star who played 14 seasons in the league, including 8 with the Seattle Supersonics, where he teamed up with Gary Payton to win the western conference title and cement a place in the NBA finals against Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls in 1996.
