A Madison man who allegedly threatened to "shoot up the place" while banging on an apartment door was arrested early Wednesday morning after he fired six shots into the air, Madison police reported.

Craig Cunningham, 31, was arrested at about 3:50 a.m. near Lovell Lane and a bike path on the southwest side, police said in a news release.

Cunningham was tentatively charged with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, being a felon in possession of a firearm and disorderly conduct while armed, police spokesman Joel DeSpain told

"He had been banging on an apartment door in the area, yelling that he was going to shoot up the place," said Lt. Sherrie Strand in the release.

As officers arrived on the scene, they saw Cunningham allegedly fire his gun into the air.

No injuries were reported.
