TACOMA, Wash. A Pierce County sheriff's spokesman says a 67-year-old man has been arrested after an hours-long standoff with officers who responded to reports of shots being fired at homes in a northeast Tacoma, Wash., neighborhood.

No residents were injured by the gunfire. Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said Mike McBee surrendered peacefully Tuesday night after being assured his two dogs would be cared for. Troyer says officers also recovered a neighbor's dog that McBee had in his house. The man withstood repeated rounds of tear gas lobbed into the home in an effort to drive him out.

Troyer said the man would be booked into jail on multiple counts.

Authorities are not sure yet what led to Tuesday's gunfire. Deputies found both a car and a house with bullet holes but are not sure how many rounds were fired. Callers who dialed 911 described a man walking through the neighborhood, shooting at homes. The man later retreated to his own home as SWAT officers arrived.
