A Lancaster County man was arrested early Thursday after he fired a gun inside an apartment.

East Lampeter Township officers had responded to a domestic disturbance between a man and woman at the Chelsea Village apartments in Leola shortly after midnight, police said.

The shot was fired into the floor and did not exit the apartment.

No one was injured.

Neal was charged with a felony count of discharging of firearm into an occupied structure, along with misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangerment, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
