Whitehall police arrested a 43-year-old man for discharging a firearm in city limits, a third-degree felony, possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony and aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor, at 5:15 p.m. July 6 in the 42000 block of East Broad Street.

The man has no permanent address, according to police reports.

Three officers and a sergeant responded to a report of shots fired.

A woman told police the man approached her with a gun, fired it into the air and then fled in a silver car with a female named "Monica."

The woman told police she had been arguing with the man "all day," and then he retrieved a gun from his vehicle and fired it.

Other people nearby did not cooperate with police concerning the incident, according to the report.

Police recovered shell casings at the scene.

While on the scene, police called the man on his cellphone and he agreed to return, arriving in his own vehicle.

He told police he argued with the woman but at no time did he fire a gun.

The man allowed police to look in his car for a gun but refused to allow a search of his apartment where he has been living with a parent.

Police searched the vehicle of the woman who left the scene at the time of the shooting and found prescription medication.

Police also searched an apartment where the man was also known to stay and located a 9mm pistol.
