Police arrested a man Monday evening after multiple gunshots were fired into an occupied home in northern Lawrence.

Officers were called to a reported disturbance with weapons in the 3400 block of Sweet Grass Court around 5 p.m. Monday, the Lawrence Police Department said in a news release Tuesday. The area is a residential neighborhood near where Kasold Drive crosses Interstate 70 on the very north edge of town.

Upon arrival, officers found evidence of a shooting that was domestic in nature and determined that multiple shots had been fired into an occupied home, though no injuries were reported, police said.

Emergency radio traffic monitored by the Journal-World indicated that witnesses saw a car connected to the shooting leaving the scene. Police followed a car matching that description and stopped it west of Lawrence on U.S. Highway 40, according to radio traffic. A male subject was taken into custody, police said in their news release.

Charles Lamont Rogers, 28, of Lawrence, was later arrested at the police department’s Investigations and Training Center at 4820 Bob Billings Parkway, according to the Douglas County Jail’s booking log. He was booked into the jail on suspicion of domestic battery and criminal discharge of a firearm. An affidavit has been forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office, police said.
