A Lisle man fired a handgun into the air during a dispute in the Loop early Sunday, police said. No one was injured, but one bullet flew shattered a window on the seventh floor of a nearby apartment building.

Officers responded to the 1000 block of South State after callers reported hearing between three and five shots fired around 1:50 a.m.

“I was walking by when this happened. Have heard 4-5 shots,” Fox32 reporter Dakarai Turner said on Twitter. The gunman, Turner said, was “angry and shouting about something. He addressed me as I walked by him.”

Prosecutors charged 25-year-old Elente Collins with felony reckless discharge of a firearm and misdemeanor criminal damage. Officers recovered a weapon and three shell casings at the scene, police said.
