Yorkville police arrested a man Wednesday afternoon for firing a handgun into the air.

Police arrested Adrian Jowers, 26, of the 1300 block of Marketplace Drive, Yorkville, for reckless discharge of a firearm following reports of a man shooting a gun from a second-floor balcony.

When police arrived on the scene, they learned of a possible address of the offender from a witness, police said. Evidence located around the scene led police to Jowers' residence and he was arrested without incident, police said.

Police recovered one semi-automatic pistol from the scene and several fired shell casings.
