Louisville Metro Police made two additional arrests in connection with the incident. Authorities say a 16-year-old male was charged with possession of a handgun by a minor. Another male was charged with possession of a handgun by a minor and violation of a court order.

Authorities say that last weekend, an individual fired a single shot into the air, followed by several gunshot-like noises.

Police don’t believe the person was firing at anyone or intended to hurt anyone.
