AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

The Auburn Police Division has arrested 36-year-old Demetric C. Moore from Auburn on felony warrants charging him with Discharging a Firearm into an Occupied Dwelling and Possession of a Short Barrel Shotgun.

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on Saturday June 28, an officer on routine patrol in the 800 block of N. Donahue Drive heard several gun shots being fired in the vicinity of an apartment complex. 

The officer immediately responded to the area the shots were heard coming from and observed an individual firing a shotgun.  Officers took Moore into custody and recovered the gun he was firing.  No one inside the residence was injured, but a 21 year old male from Auburn standing outside the residence sustained a superficial injury to his arm, and refused medical treatment. 

There were also minor damages to the apartment building and an unoccupied vehicle, a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo that was parked in the area. 

Moore was subsequently arrested and transported to the Lee County Jail and will be eligible for a $60,000 bond.
