Tacoma police shot at a vehicle in Puyallup this morning after the driver apparently rammed a friend’s car and several police cars.
According to police, officers were called to the 300 block of South 9th Street at 2:47 a.m. for a report of someone ramming a parked car. The 911 caller identified the culprit as a friend who was “intentionally ramming her parked vehicle and trying to break out her vehicle windows,” Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool wrote in a news release.
Police tried to stop the car, but the driver did not pull over. Officers from several police departments tried to stop the car, but the driver headed into Puyallup. Once in Puyallup, the driver stopped near 104th Street East and Fruitland Avenue East and rammed several police vehicles, Cool said.
Tacoma police fired one round, but did not hit the man.
After being caught by a police dog, the man was booked into the Pierce County Jail.
