Tacoma police officers arrested two men Wednesday nights after gunshots were fired in the area of the Tacoma Mall.

No one was injured and at least one car was struck by the gunfire, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

Tacoma police started receiving calls regarding gunfire about 7:15 p.m. The first callers reported hearing the shots by the post office on South Pine Street. Other callers reported hearing it closer to the mall, Fulghum said.

Officers found no one who saw the shooting. However, witnesses pointed officers to people who might have been involved and locations where guns might have been tossed, Fulghum said.

Officers found two guns. They arrested two men in the aftermath and booked them into the jail on suspicion of unlawful possession of a firearm and other charges.
