By Ben Hoppenworth

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Police have arrested a man suspected of pulling a gun at Davenport's North YMCA.

The Quad-City Times reports that a 21-year-old Davenport man has been charged with carrying a weapon on school grounds and intimidation with a weapon.

Police identified the man as a suspect in the Friday gun incident and obtained a search warrant for his home, where he was arrested later Friday.

The newspaper says the man is suspected of confronting several other teens and men with the gun in a YMCA gym.

Davenport North High School, which is next to the YMCA, was locked down for about an hour, as were nearby Harrison Elementary and Wood Intermediate schools.

No one was injured.
