A suspect has been arrested for firing a gun six times into the air outside an apartment complex and threatening to shoot another man in Cedar Rapids.

It happened on Easter Sunday at 6:43 p.m. in the 1600 block of 30th Street NW.

Johnson is charged with reckless use of a firearm and marijuana possession.
