MANCHESTER - A 23-year-old city man faces a felony charge after police say he fired his handgun in the air during an argument outside a downtown bar early Saturday morning.

Kenneth Errico of 212 Fox Hollow Way was arrested outside McGarvey's, 1097 Elm St., around 1:20 a.m. and charged with felony reckless conduct and resisting arrest, according to police.

Sgt. Craig Rousseau said Sgt. Brandon Murphy was patrolling the area and witnessed the incident. He said Errico and some of his friends "were getting into it with some other patrons from the bar and he decided to fire off a couple rounds in the air."

The shooter took off into the alley behind the bar and Murphy and other officers who responded to the incident pursued him, Rousseau said. Errico was found in a car in the alley and was arrested and taken to the police station.

Rousseau said police also recovered the weapon, a .40-caliber handgun.

Errico was held on $3,000 cash or surety bail.
