TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — 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 say 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 say McBee was arrested Tuesday night after barricading himself in his home for several hours.
