    Just hours after a homicide in Harrisburg Wednesday night, police arrested a man after more shots were fired nearby.

    Police say 18-year-old Christopher Conway faces more than a dozen charges following his arrest.

    Around 6 p.m., officers responding to an earlier shooting on the 1900 block of Bellevue Road heard multiple gunshots and a vehicle revving its engine from the area of the 1800 block of Chestnut Street.

    When officers ran to the area, a white, four-door sedan turned down 19th Street. According to police, it's believe that the vehicle was involved in the shooting on Chestnut.

    According to police, a resident on the 1800 block of Chestnut St. called 911 to report her home had been shot multiple times.

    The car crashed a short time later and two males ran from the car. The driver, identified as Conway, ran to the scene of the homicide on Bellevue Road and was arrested.

    Officers found a firearm inside the vehicle.

    The passenger fled in a different direction and was not captured by police.
