ROCKFORD — A Rockford man was arrested Wednesday after police say he got in a domestic altercation inside one apartment, fired a gun in the stairwell, pointed the weapon at another person and then kicked his way into a separate apartment.


It happened around 4:15 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of Eighth Street. Police said they located the suspect fleeing the scene when they arrived and arrested him after a foot chase and a brief struggle.


Mario Davis, 31, faces charges of home invasion, aggravated assault with a firearm and resisting arrest.


Officers found spent shell casing and other evidence a weapon was fired inside the apartment complex, police said in a news release.


Davis was booked in the Winnebago County Jail.
