Citrus Heights police confirmed Thursday evening that a man suspected of firing multiple shots inside a home near Brooktree Park has been arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm. The man, whose name police did not release, was arrested without injury or further incident, according to Sgt. Jason Baldwin.
The arrest brings some closure to an incident that occurred Wednesday night, involving reports of shots fired at a residence on the 6900 block of Brookcrest Way and a heavy police response with helicopter activity. Although police initially surrounded the home and then pulled back, Baldwin said detectives were later able to secure a warrant for his arrest on Thursday and also “recovered multiple firearms from the location…”
