Tacoma police were investigating two driveby shootings Tuesday night. No injuries were reported in either incident.

The first incident occurred about 10:30 p.m.  The victims were driving south in the 7200 block of Interstate 5 in Tacoma when a silver Intrepid pulled up.

Occupants of the Intrepid flashed gang signs at the other can and then someone fired one round from a gun, police reported. The bullet struck the wheel of the other vehicle.

Witnesses got a partial license plate of the suspects’ vehicle. The number and a description of the vehicle was broadcast to on-duty patrol officers, police said.

Puyallup tribal police spotted and stopped the suspects’ vehicle at 72nd Street and Portland Avenue. One witness was detained.

The investigation was ongoing.

The second driveby shooting occurred at 10:45 p.m. A small silver vehicle reportedly fired four shots at a home in the 8000 South D Street, police said.

One bullet went through the living room window. Three others struck the house. No one was injured.

The investigation was continuing.
