IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- An Iowa City man was arrested and charged after police say he fired a gun inside a downtown building last month.

Stephen Clark Caldwell, 69, is charged with Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon following the February 21 incident inside the Ecumenical Towers.

Police were called to the building at 320 E. Washington Street when people heard what they thought were gunshots.

Police found that Caldwell had fired the gun in a hallway.  They say he had no intended target and no one was injured.  There was damage to the inside of the building.

When police asked Caldwell why he fired the gun, he told them, "Who knows".

Caldwell was taken to the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics for further evaluation and then taken to the Johnson County Jail.
