A 28-year-old convicted felon was arrested early this morning after allegedly firing several rounds in his Tacoma home and refusing to let his girlfriend, her daughter and others leave the house.
The girlfriend was able to call police about 2:30 a.m. to report that she and her daughter were being held in their home in the 4600 block of S. 2nd Street. She warned officers that her boyfriend was drunk and had been shooting a rifle inside.
When police arrived, the man walked outside with a rifle slung across his chest. He followed officers’ orders to lay down on the ground and was taken into custody.
The man has a past conviction for first-degree assault and is not allowed to possess a firearm since he is a convicted felon. He was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of unlawful imprisonment, domestic violence and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
