Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Saturday said they arrested a man who had shot at their officers on Friday.
Three others also were arrested at the scene, police said. There were no injuries in the incident.
Authorities said officers were conducting a separate shooting investigation at the 1800 block of Village Lake Drive around 9:30 a.m. Friday, and when they were inside a residence a man ran upstairs and began shooting at them.
The man then jumped from a second-story window and ran from the apartment, police said.
Officers located the suspect nearby and he was taken into custody. During a search, police said a firearm was found at the scene but did not identify what type of weapon it was.
