When police got to the scene, they were informed than a man had pointed a gun and fired it at a woman following a dispute that took place in the driveway of a home. The woman was not hit by the gunshot, the statement said, and the suspect had fled the scene in a car.
Police then relayed information about the suspect to other responding officers, the release said.
BPD said in the release that the suspect's car was found near Seminary Avenue and Ewing Street. The driver was by himself, police said, and was arrested without incident.
The statement said officers confiscated four guns they found inside the suspect's car.
BPD identified him in the release as Detertorian D. Sanders, 26, of Normal. The statement said he is charged with aggravated assault by discharging a firearm, aggravated discharge of a firearm at an occupied building, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and unlawful use of a weapon.
Sanders is booked at the McLean County jail. No bond information has been released.
The Town of Normal will be closing streets on Saturday for Illinois State University's homecoming festivities. That includes closures on College Avenue, University Street, North Street, School Road and Uptown Circle.
