A 22-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Sunday night on drug possession charges after police were looking for a car in connection with a report of possible gunshots fired in the Oread neighborhood.
Police said two residents of Hanover Place Apartments, near 14th and Kentucky streets, reported hearing shots fired and described a vehicle leaving the scene.
Police spokeswoman Kim Murphree said officers scanned the area but did not find evidence a gun was discharged. Kansas University Public Safety officers then stopped a vehicle that matched the description near 13th Street and Jayhawk Boulevard.
No weapon was recovered, Murphree said, but officers arrested the driver on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to sell it. The suspect was taken to the Douglas County Jail and later freed on $3,000 bond.
