MOLINE, Illinois -- Police have arrested a man who they say mishandled a firearm at a Moline apartment.

Police responded to shots fired at 11:15 p.m. at 2104 18th Ave on Dec. 14, according to a press release. When they arrived, they found a witness who saw people running from the Timber Ridge Apartments toward a vehicle in the parking lot. Officers quickly found the vehicle and arrested two suspects.
