PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities in Arizona have arrested a man in connection to a shooting at the home of a Yavapai County sheriff's deputy where the bullets almost hit a sleeping child.

The Prescott Valley Police Department made the arrest on Tuesday.

Police said only that the person arrested was male but did not provide his name or age, and department Jerry Ferguson told the AP in an email on Friday that he could not provide any additional information, including whether the person was an adult or a juvenile.

Authorities said the shots were fired on Dec. 3 and nearly hit a 4-year-old child.

No one was hurt. An investigation is ongoing.
