A 19-year-old McPadden Drive resident was arrested on a slew of charges Saturday after police said he fled an officer who was investigating a report of gunfire on Woodend Road.
Terrell Britton took off on foot after an officer asked him to remove his hand from his pocket, police said. He then entered a nearby home where he discarded a handgun before being apprehended by police, according to the report.
