      Shots fired near University of Washington book store

      SEATTLE -- Police have arrested a man who allegedly fired shots near the University of Washington Book Store on Monday afternoon.

      No one was hurt, but a window at the nearby Crossroads Trading Co. store was shattered by gunfire. The store is also managed by the University Book Store.

      The university sent out an alert shortly after 2 p.m. informing students and staff members of the incident at 4326 University Way NE.

      Police said a black Audi fled from the scene, and officers stopped the vehicle a short time later in the 4300 block of Lake Washington Blvd.

      Video from AIR 4 showed a man at the scene of the traffic stop being handcuffed and placed into the back of a patrol car.

      It was not clear what prompted the shooting.
