1 arrested in shootout at Central District ‘gang house’

One person was arrested last night after someone opened fire on a home in the Central District, prompting an occupant in the house to return fire, police said.

Police described the target of the shooting as a “gang house.”

Just before midnight Monday, someone knocked on the door of the home at 27th Avenue and East Spring Street and then fired six to seven gunshots at the house. A man in the house grabbed his own gun and ran out to the porch, where he saw two males running down the street, police said.

One of the males turned around and again opened fire. The man returned fire, shooting at least a half-dozen rounds at the two males, who drove off in a tan Toyota Camry.

No one was injured by the gunfire, police said.

A short time later police spotted the suspects’ car as well as one of the suspects near 35th Avenue and East Pine Street. Officers chased the suspect down an alley and arrested him. They also found a handgun in the alley, police said.

The occupant of the home turned over his handgun to police and showed officers that he had a valid license for his gun.

The Police Department’s gang unit is investigating
