Overnight report of shots fired leads to arrest


One man has been arrested after a report of shots fired early Thursday morning in Steubenville.

Steubenville Police Chief Bill McCafferty said a man fired a shotgun in the 1200 block of Park Street. No injuries were reported. Investigators used nearby surveillance cameras to track the suspect's footprints in the snow.

Police say the suspect, Jeff Dotson, was arrested on two outstanding drug warrants. There are currently no active charges from the shooting against him, as a lack of evidence can't prove Dotson’s direct involvement.
