AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Police say that the 15-year-old who was arrested Wednesday for allegedly firing a gun into his neighbor's home live-streamed the shooting.

Police were called to the 1000 block of Bloomfield Avenue in Akron around 9 p.m. for shots fired. Neighbors told officers that the teen was firing a gun out of his window indiscriminately. No one was injured.

The teen, who reportedly lives with his grandmother in the city's Highland Square neighborhood, was arrested and charged with having weapons under disability, discharging a firearm into an occupied structure and discharging a firearm within city limits. He was taken to the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.

Police say he live-streamed a series of videos in which he is seen playing with guns, cursing and laughing. In one of the videos, he acknowledges that someone might be home next door before firing. 

Police are still investigating how he obtained the guns.
