Man Reportedly Seen In Surveillance Video Firing Gun Into The Air Arrested

An arrest has been made after the release of surveillance video last week showing a man chasing another man while firing shots in Downtown Redding. The incident was last Monday morning in the area of California Street and Center Street. Detectives identified 36-year-old Nicholas Utne as their suspect. Thursday evening he was arrested near his home on Serrano Place, and the home was searched. Detectives reported finding a number of guns, including an illegal assault rifle. Utne’s charges include shooting in a grossly negligent manner. It’s not believed anyone was hit by gunfire, but the man he was chasing has not been located.
