Englewood police arrested a 20-year-old man who allegedly was firing a gun in the air in the area of West Wesley Avenue and South Zuni Street.

The incident was reported about 5:15 a.m. March 23 when Denver police officers in the area on an unrelated matter heard shots fired and investigated.

One Denver officer reported seeing a man at the Wesley-Zuni intersection firing a handgun down the street. When the officer challenged the man, the suspect reportedly tossed the pistol over his shoulder as he raised his hand and then ran.

Officers saw the man run into a house in the 2300 block of West Wesley Avenue. Englewood police went to the house and located the 20-year-old suspect. A warrant had previously been issued for his arrest on a different matter.

The suspect was arrested and taken to Arapahoe County Jail where, in addition to the warrant charges, he could face charges related to the weapon and firing the shots.
