KINGSPORT — A 48-year-old Kingsport man has been arrested after allegedly shooting fireworks inside an apartment building at 5 a.m.

An incident report from Kingsport police says it occurred Saturday morning at 1526 Waverly Road. The responding officer reports walking into an entryway to find a lit rocket style firework on the carpet, with a man looking down from the top of a set of stairs.

The suspect allegedly turned and ran, ignoring commands to stop, while the officer ducked into a corner as the firework exploded.
