Seattle Pot Shop Owner Shawn Kemp Involved in Tacoma Shooting

March 11, 2023 · CelebStoner

Seattle dispensary owner and former Sonic Shawn Kemp was involved in a shooting incident at the Tacoma Mall on Mar. 8. Tacoma PD reported:

“An altercation between the occupants of 2 cars led to shots being fired at a parking lot in the 4500 blk of S. Steele St. One car fled. No injuries were reported. A gun was recovered. A 53-yr-old male was booked for Drive-By Shooting. The investigation is ongoing.”

That male person was Kemp, the six-time NBA All-Star who played for 14 season with the Sonics, Cavaliers, Trailblazers and Magic. But he’s best known for his consistent play with the Sonics (who moved to Oklahoma City in 2008) during his first nine NBA seasons as a power forward and has stayed in the state, becoming a licensed cannabis business with two Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis shops in Seattle’s Belltown and SODO sections. The latter store opened less than a month ago.

According to FOX 13, Kemp “had property stolen from his car on Tuesday, tracked his iPhone to Tacoma on Wednesday and when he approached the vehicle, a suspect shot at him. He fired back in self-defense.”

Tacoma is 35 miles south of Seattle. While the other car drove away, police arrested Kemp and detained him at Pierce County Jail. He was released on Mar. 9 without any charges. (Full Story)
