Former NBA star Shawn Kemp was arrested and booked into the Pierce County (Washington) Jail on Wednesday in connection with the drive-by shooting.

Tacoma police said shots were fired Wednesday afternoon after an altercation between people in two vehicles near a Tacoma mall. No injuries were reported and one of the cars fled, according to a police department release on social media.

A gun has been recovered, which is being investigated.

Pierce County’s online records show Kemp, 53, was booked on a felony drive-by-shooting charge at 5:58 p.m. local time, nearly four hours after the incident.

Kemp was a six-time NBA All-Star who played 14 seasons in the league, including eight with the Seattle SuperSonics, who selected him 17th overall in the 1989 draft.
