Puyallup Police spent most of Sunday looking for a suspect who got away from officers early in the morning.
Multiple 911 calls alerted police to sounds of gunfire around 5 a.m. near the 250 block of S Meridian Street. Callers reported gunfire, several loud screams, and a possible suspect vehicle taking off from the area.
A responding officer spotted the suspicious vehicle and attempted to stop it. The suspects quickly took off at a high rate of speed and a short pursuit ensued.
The suspects crashed their vehicle at 23rd Avenue SE and Forest Green Blvd and fled on foot. An Auburn K-9 unit tracked down one of the two suspects, while the second got away.
Police tracked the outstanding suspect to a home in the 2700 block of Briarwood Court N around 7:30 p.m. Sunday evening.
He barricaded himself in the attic of the home for nearly eight hours.
Officers took the man into custody just before 4 a.m. Monday morning. A small number of evacuated neighbors were allowed back into their homes.
