Three men were shot in Tacoma late Friday after being confronted by another man

Three men were shot in Tacoma late Friday after being confronted by another man while walking along a street and are in stable condition in local hospitals, Tacoma police reported.Three men were arrested and jailed in connection with the shooting, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said Saturday.The shooting occurred around 11:20 p.m. Friday in South Tacoma along South 51st Street, between Pine and Junett streets.
Fulghum said the shooting appears to be gang-related but he would not say why police believe that’s so.The three men, all 21, were walking along South 51st Street when they were confronted by another man, Fulghum said. After a brief exchange, the man shot all three men – one to two times each in the torso – with a handgun, Fulghum said. About a half-dozen shots were fired.A vehicle then fled the scene. About 25 minutes later, Lakewood police stopped that vehicle at 92nd Street and South Tacoma Way. Tacoma police arrested three men who were in the vehicle, two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old, on suspicion of first-degree assault. They were booked into Pierce County Jail. Police believe one of the three was the shooter, Fulghum said. Two of the shooting victims were taken to St. Joseph Medical Center and one was transported to Madigan Army Medical Center. Fulghum said the three are expected to survive.
