A University of Puget Sound spokeswoman says an apparent car prowler pulled a gun and fired a shot at two campus security officers but no one was injured.
Spokeswoman Shirley Skeel says the man fled in a stolen vehicle late Wednesday afternoon.
Tacoma police blocked off a nearby street for several hours Wednesday evening as they searched an empty home for the man. The street later reopened.
Skeel says the security officers responded to a report of a suspicious man in a parking lot behind several university-owned houses.
