UNION TWP., Ohio -- One person was arrested Sunday night after shots were fired inside an apartment complex on Ohio Pike in Union Township.

Jeremy Boggess was taken into custody by Clermont County Special Response Team members just before 8:30 p.m. at the Ohio Pike Terrace Apartments in the Eastgate/Beechmont area.

The SRT members apprehended Boggess more than three hours after the shots were fired by entering his apartment through a back window. The team was on the scene for about an hour.

The incident began at about 5 p.m. when a woman heard shots fired inside her adult son's apartment, according to Union Township police.

The woman told investigators she knocked on the door of her son's apartment and heard several gunshots fired inside the apartment when she attempted to open the door. Law enforcement officials say she then fled the scene and contacted police.

The woman told investigators her son had been having a “hard time.”

Six families were evacuated from their apartments for several hours due to the situation.

 

Boggess will be charged with improperly discharging a firearm into a habitation, a felony. He will also face two misdemeanor charges.
