A man has been arrested after multiple shots were fired at a home just outside of Faribault Monday evening.

The incident happened just before 11 p.m., with a resident reporting someone shot at his house on the 3000 block of Cedar Lake Boulevard in Wells Township.

The homeowner told police he'd heard gunshots, and then observed bullet holes in his property.

He gave the description of the suspect as driving a white Dodge Dakota truck.

A short time later, a Faribault police officer found a vehicle matching the description, with a man taken into custody a short time later.

"Evidence shows that numerous rounds were fired at this occupied residence," the Rice County Sheriff's Office said.

"I am thankful that no one was struck by these bullets," said Sheriff Troy Dunn. "I am grateful for the great work of our deputies and Faribault Police officers and that they were able to get this dangerous person in custody without any further damage or injury.

"Our citizens should be proud of their law enforcement and the great work our men and women do day in and day out."
