One man was arrested and police are looking for at least three others after a Center Grove area resident reported someone stole his vehicle and shot at him.

About 5 a.m. Saturday, a resident in the 3100 block of Buckmoor Parkway saw someone steal his black Honda Pilot. The man ran outside, called police, got into another vehicle and chased after a red Dodge Charger that had driven away from his home, according to a police report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

The Charger stopped shortly after, and four men got out and ran away. The resident told police he heard what sounded like a gunshot and believed one of the men shot at him, and he went back home, the report said. Police found the Charger had been reported stolen from Westfield.
