Tacoma Police say sounds from the barrage of bullets were caught on surveillance video. They were firing shots at a vehicle speeding away.

According to investigators, the four arrested were three boys ages 13, 15, and 17, as well as a 15-year-old girl.

Witnesses reported seeing the four juveniles sprinting between houses spraying bullets. Several rounds hit two homes. Windows were busted out in one home, and a bullet got stuck in a piece of furniture.

The second home reported that bullets came through their living room, near where the residents were sitting, and a third home reported that bullets went through their fence.

A K9 unit tracked the suspects hiding in a yard. They were arrested and booked without incident into the juvenile detention center on first degree assault.
