A man was taken into cus­tody early Mon­day after gun­shots were fired off a bal­cony at a mo­tel in Lenexa, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to shots fired about 3:45 a.m. in the 9700 block of Lenexa Drive, where a wit­ness re­ported hear­ing “pe­ri­odic gun­shots” through­out the evening, ac­cord­ing to the Lenexa Po­lice Depart­ment.

More gun­shots were heard when of­fi­cers ar­rived in the area, po­lice said. A perime­ter was set up un­til of­fi­cers de­ter­mined the gun­shots were be­ing fired from a sec­ond­floor bal­cony at the nearby Mo­tel 6.

Two hours after they were called to the scene, of­fi­cers took a man into cus­tody. He was not iden­ti­fied in the po­lice state­ment.

No one re­ported be­ing wounded in the shoot­ing.

In a post on Twit­ter, the depart­ment said the in­ci­dent high­lighted the “brav­ery that po­lice of­fi­cers around the coun­try demon­strate on a daily ba­sis while serv­ing their re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties.”
