Former SuperSonics star Shawn Kemp charged with first-degree assault in shooting

Apr 14, 2023

Seattle SuperSonics legend Shawn Kemp has been charged with first-degree assault from an alleged drive-by shooting in March.

Kemp allegedly shot a gun in a Tacoma mall parking lot after a confrontation between occupants of two cars. No one was injured.

He was released from a Washington jail the next day.

Kemp says he had property stolen from his car and was acting in self-defense, a source close to the former NBA star said. Kemp tracked his missing iPhone to the Tacoma Mall, and when he approached a vehicle, a suspect shot at him, and he fired back in self-defense, he says.
