Police said a 17-year-old was intoxicated when he fired several shots into a neighborhood Monday morning.

Colorado Springs police responded to the 1900 block of Doherty Road, near Jetwing Drive and Chelton Road, after receiving reports that a teen was firing a gun in the middle of the street.

According to police, at least three shots were fired, one of which entered an occupied home. Gunfire also hit a car and a motorcycle parked inside of a garage, police said.

Police said the teen later entered a garage, and officers evacuated that home.

A police dog helped officers grab the teen, and he was arrested without further incident.

Police said no one was injured.

The teen is facing charges, including possession of a handgun by a juvenile and illegal discharge of a firearm. He was being held at the Spring Creek Youth Services Center on Monday, police said.
