An arrest was made after a drive-by shooting in Arkansas City.

Officers responded just before 11 o'clock Tuesday night in the 200 block of North 3rd Street to reports of gunshots. Later, police found a house in the 100 block of North 3rd had been struck by several bullets. A large window was struck inside a room where a woman and child were sleeping in bed.

Police also found the handgun that was used in an alley. There were two adults also in the house along with the child, but no one was hurt.
