Ypsilanti Police arrest suspect accused of pointing gun at woman, firing shots
Ypsilanti Police arrested a 44-year-old Ypsilanti Township man Saturday afternoon after receiving multiple 911 calls about a man firing a shotgun on the street.
Ypsilanti Police Sgt. Deric Gress said the man is believed to have pointed a gun at a woman and then fired it up in the air in the 500 block of Armstrong Drive. He said the woman, who knows the man, was trying to talk to him at the time of the incident. "She's very lucky," he said.
Officers who went to the area to investigate about 5:30 p.m. saw a man with a gun take off running, Ypsilanti Police said in a news release. They lost sight of him once but said he then ran into a residence a block away.
Police entered the home in the 600 block of Armstrong Drive and arrested the suspect, according to the release.
The suspect was taken to the Washtenaw County Jail. No one was injured in the incident.
