WILMINGTON, NEW HANOVER COUNTY -

Police in Wilmington have arrested a man after they say he fired a pellet gun at some children.

Wilmington Police Department spokeswoman Linda Rawley said officers responded Monday night to a report of a man firing the gun at children.

Rawley said when officers encountered the suspect, he gave them a false name, then ran off.

When officers caught up with 21-year-old Jonathan Kelly, they found that he was wanted on felony warrants in Cumberland County for failure to appear.
