Man arrested after allegedly pointing gun at people, firing into the air
A 23-year-old Akron man was arrested after firing multiple gunshots into the air and pointing his gun at a woman who was holding a small child, Akron police said Friday.
Kyle Smallwood was arrested after police officers responded about 9:30 p.m. Thursday to a call about shots being fired in the 1500 block of Wildon Avenue in East Akron.
Police said the caller reported that a man fired multiple rounds in the air and people were trying to get him to stop. An argument ensued and the man pointed his gun at the woman holding the child, the caller reported.
Officers were able to get Smallwood to come out of a home on Wildon and he was taken into custody. Police found the gun in the home’s basement.
