A couple of incidents involving a gun prompted the arrest of a Salina teen.
Salina Police Captain Mike Sweeney says that 17-year-old Zachary DeGraw was arrested Saturday evening, after a shot was fired from a handgun.
Police were sent to the area of 9th and Otto to the report of a shot being fired from a handgun. Witnesses saw a person on foot discharge a gun, pointed to the west.
A short time later DeGraw was located near Haskett and Cloud Streets, and a high powered semi automatic handgun was recovered.
DeGraw is also accused in an unrelated incident that happened on thursday. Allegedly he lifted his shirt to display a handgun in his waistband to a group of girls at the Central Mall in Salina, and threatened to shoot them.
No one was hurt in either incident, and there was no damage found from the single gunshot.
DeGraw could face charges that include five counts of making criminal threats, five counts of aggravated assault, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, and one count of unlawful discharge of a firearm.
The gun belongs to one of DeGraw’s family members, who legally owns it.
DeGraw was booked into juvenile detention.
