Former Seattle Sonics star Shawn Kemp, nicknamed “Reign Man,” was arrested on Wednesday in connection with a drive-by shooting in the state.

“Shawn Kemp has been booked into Pierce County jail in connection with a drive-by shooting near the Tacoma Mall,” tweeted Seattle-based conservative radio host Jason Rantz, who broke the story.

“Tacoma PD reports: At 1:58 pm, an altercation between the occupants of 2 cars led to shots being fired at a parking lot in the 4500 blk of S. Steele St. One car fled. No injuries were reported,” Rantz added. “A gun was recovered.”

Kemp was a first-round draft pick in the 1989 NBA draft.


The 6-time NBA All-Star played in 625 games with the Seattle Sonics and helped the team reach the finals in 1996.
