Officers continued up the stairs and heard another shot from inside the apartment, according to police. They arrested the suspect when he came out a few seconds later.

According to police, the suspect, who was drunk, told officers he and his roommate were arguing and he was pointing his gun in the air when it "went off."

Fortunately for all involved, the apartment is located on the top floor of the building, and no one was shot.
