And police say no one will be charged in the incident either.

According to Shenango Police Superintendent William Phillips, police were called by family members concerned about the well being of a man on Fields Drive off Savannah Road.

Phillips said the man had fired a shot prior to the arrival of officers, but he did not aim at anyone and no one was hurt, the superintendent said.
