Things have certainly changed in 24 hours.
Former NBA star Shawn Kemp was released from jail on Thursday after a drive-by shooting investigation in Tacoma. Prosecutors will not be filing charges against the former SuperSonic.
Kemp was booked into jail in connection with a drive-by shooting outside the Tacoma Mall, but was released a day later after more information was revealed into what happened.
Kemp reportedly had property stolen from his car on Tuesday, so he tracked his iPhone to Tacoma on Wednesday and when he approached the vehicle, a suspect shot at him. He fired back in self-defense.
The Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office said it was not filing charges against Kemp: “The Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is not filing charges against Mr. Kemp today. This case’s status will be “No Charges Filed” pending further investigation by Tacoma Police, and Mr. Kemp will be released.”
Kemp is a 6-time NBA All-Star. He was a first-round draft pick in the 1989 NBA draft.
He helped the Sonics reach the NBA Finals in 1996.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
