Shortly before 9 p.m. on Monday, Portland Police were dispatched to a Kennedy Park apartment building where it was reported that a gun had been fired into an apartment.
Officers were given a description of the potential suspect, a juvenile, and later located him.
The juvenile was taken into custody and the weapon was recovered.
He received a summons for Aggravated Reckless Conduct and was released on conditions.
Aggravated Reckless Conduct is a Class B crime punishable by up to ten years incarceration and a $20,000 fine.
According to the Maine Criminal Code, a person is guilty of Aggravated Reckless Conduct “if the person with terroristic intent engages in conduct that in fact creates a substantial risk of serious bodily injury to another person.”
