    Deputies take Mike McBee into custody in Tacoma after McBee allegedly walked down the street firing guns at houses and then barricaded himself in his home and refusing to come out.

TACOMA -- Prosecutors have filed six felony charges -- including attempted murder -- against a man they say shot up his neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.
Michael E. McBee also faces two counts of first-degree assault, one count of first-degree burglary, second-degree malicious mischief and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities said McBee fired a shot at one man, pointed a gun at another and shot up cars and other property in his Fife Heights neighborhood. No one was hurt. A week-old argument with a neighbor might have prompted the outburst, according to court records.
Police said McBee was arrested Tuesday night after barricading himself in his home for several hours.
Residents who dialed 911 described a man walking through the neighborhood, shooting at homes. The man retreated to his own home as SWAT officers arrived, but talked by phone to sheriff's negotiators and friends they brought in. He also withstood repeated gas canisters lobbed into the house in an effort to drive him out.
He surrendered after being assured his two dogs would be cared for.
Court records say a week earlier, McBee and a neighbor got into a fistfight after an argument.
