At 7:45 a.m., a subject matching the description given by callers, and later identified as Lane, was taken into custody in the 3700 block of Jonko Avenue. Deputies conducted field show-ups with witnesses, who positively identified Lane as the man seen with the gun earlier.

Lane was charged with gross negligent discharge of a firearm, possession of methamphetamine for sale, possession of burglary tools, unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.
