A local man was arrested over the weekend after shots were fired at his residence.

Effingham police were called at 7:01pm Saturday to the residence of 32-year-old Larry Manuel on Clayborne Court in Silver Lake Estates on the city's northeast side.  The call was due to reports the homeowner was discharging a weapon in the area. 

Officers, assisted by Illinois State Police, arrived on scene and established a perimeter.  Manuel was outside the residence and was apprehended without incident. 

No one was injured during the incident.

Manuel was arrested on counts of carrying and possessing a firearm and disorderly conduct.  He was taken to Effingham County Jail, but later posted bond and was released.
