ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old man is in jail after a drive-by shooting into an Arkansas City home occupied by a couple and their young child.

Arkansas City police say in a news release that several shots from a car hit a house late Tuesday. The bullets went into a room in which the couple and their 3-month-old child were sleeping but no one was injured.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (https://bit.ly/1n6lx55 ) the residents were moving out of the house Wednesday. One resident, Garret Watkins, says he thought the suspect was high on drugs during the shooting. He says he also might have shot at the house because he owed money to a friend of Watkins.

No charges have been filed.
