BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - A Bowling Green man has been charged after police responded to a shots fired call Wednesday night.
Sebastian Howard, 23, was charged with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, violation of a Kentucky EPO, unlawful discharge of firearms and multiple drug charges.
According to citations, police responded to the 800 block of Lynwood Way around 11 p.m. Wednesday night.
Police conducted a traffic stop on a white Chevy Malibu leaving the scene of the call that was described by neighbors as being involved in the shooting.
The driver and passenger in the vehicle said that Howard fired a gun “several times in the air” while outside the home on Lynwood Way.

Police said the Dodge Dart stopped on Kirtley Way where they found Howard at a home.
It was determined that Howard lives at the home on Lynnwood Way and the Kirtley residence is his mother’s home, according to police.
Police found that Howard was a convicted felon and also had an active DVO against him with a stipulation of no firearms possession.
Nine .380 shell casings were recovered from the Lynwood Way home.
A search warrant was obtained for the home and the Dodge Dart where police found a Ruger .380 handgun under the driver’s seat.
One .380 magazine was recovered in the Lynwood Way home along with one .380 shell casing in the living room, a marijuana bong, a sale, a THC cartridge, two marijuana blunts in an ashtray, and some loose marijuana, according to police.
Howard was taken to the Warren County Jail where he remains as of Thursday afternoon on a $10,000 cash bond.
