LYNWOOD, Calif. – Deputies arrested a man in Lynwood over the weekend after he was seen on home surveillance footage seemingly randomly firing a gun into the air in the middle of a neighborhood.

It happened around 4:30 on May 11, near the intersection of San Jose and Norton avenues. A viewer shared the video with FOX 11. In the clip, a man is seen crossing the road, then appearing to point a gun straight into the air, before letting at least six shots loose.

The gunshots set off the alarm of a nearby car. 

SUGGESTED: Suspect allegedly in stolen car crashes into Gold’s Gym

The camera captured the moment deputies got to the area. They took the man into custody.

It’s not clear why the man was firing the weapon.
