LOUISVILLE, Ky.  --  An off-duty police officer arrested a man who allegedly fired gunshots into the air behind a local bar.

Late Saturday night, three gun shots were fired behind Molly Malone's on Baxter Avenue. An off-duty officer at a pizzeria next door heard the shots and immediately went to the scene.

According to police reports, there was a large crowd gathered and they immediately identified Jerry Cox, 35, as the shooter. A search of Cox revealed a loaded handgun in his back left pocket. The gun had three spent shell casings.

Cox is facing a few charges including 1st degree wanton endangerment.
