(AP) – An 18-year-old Milwaukee man is charged after authorities say he fired a handgun into the air as hundreds of fans were celebrating the Milwaukee Bucks victory in the NBA Finals.

The man was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and disorderly conduct with use of a dangerous weapon.

According to a criminal complaint, officers responded to a report of shots fired near the Deer District.

One officer pointed out a suspect as fans began to run away.

Police ordered the man to the ground and found he had a semi-automatic Glock 23 that was missing several rounds.

There was no information if this incident is tied to the same shooting that night that wounded three.
