TACOMA, Washington (KING) - A man suspected of walking through a Tacoma, Washington neighborhood and firing shots at homes was taken into custody just before 9 p.m. Tuesday after a standoff with police at his residence.

No one was hurt.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department identified the suspect as 67-year-old Mike McBee, a Vietnam veteran and longtime resident of the neighborhood off 58th Avenue Northeast.

Officers responded to a dozen 911 calls about a man walking in the 5800 block of 13th St. Ct. NE in the Browns Point area firing shots at residences.

"When our officers arrived, he retreated back  to his house," said Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer.  "We know hes contained to that house and don't expect him to be going anywhere."
