Tacoma police continue to search for a man suspected of firing at two University of Puget Sound campus security officers Wednesday night.
Police investigators have an idea who they are looking for, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said today. They have not released a description of the suspect.
The campus security officers confronted the man about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday near Union Avenue and North 14th Street. The security officers had been alerted to a man trying to break into cars behind several university-owned houses.
When the officers arrived, the suspect pulled a gun, fired one shot and then drove off in a stolen vehicle. No one was injured.
Tacoma police later found the car parked outside an abandoned house near Sixth Avenue and Alder Street. Officers searched the house but did not find anyone inside, Fulghum said.
