By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A man was arrested after firing a gun in his yard, then refusing to come out of his home after police arrived.

Paducah Police said they reported to a call Friday night after a woman reported she heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the backyard of a nearby home.

Officers arrived and also heard several shots, then saw a man walking around the corner of the home in the 1200 block of Hedge Lane.

The man, identified as Bradford L. Alexander, ran inside and refused to come out.  The Paducah Police Departments Crisis Negotiations Team was called and after two hours, finally convinced Alexander to surrender.

Alexander admitted to having fired a rifle in his back yard, and spent shell casings were found.  He was charged with 16 counts of first-degree Wanton Endangerment and booked into the McCracken County regional Jail.

Police searched the home, located and seized more than 15 guns and a large amount of ammunition.
