Quincy man charged with aggravated discharge, theft

A Quincy man was arrested on several charges after police officers responded early Sunday morning to a report of shots being fired.

Caleb G. Dickerson, 22, of 822 State, was arrested on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm, theft of a pickup truck and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Police reported that officers were sent to an apartment building at 1120 Lind at 2:23 a.m. Sunday after receiving the shots-fired report. Officers spoke with several residents in the apartment complex and learned that Dickerson was in Apartment 4, police said. The Emergency Response Team was called in, and Dickerson was apprehended, police said.

An investigation revealed that Dickerson had reportedly stolen a pickup truck from an undisclosed location and taken a firearm from that vehicle, police said. No other information was available.

Dickerson was lodged in the Adams County Jail.

The Adams County Sheriff's Department assisted.
