A Newport Beach man was arrested Wednesday night after he discharged a firearm inside an inhabited residence, police reported.

Chase Duncan Philip Rosten, 21, was charged with willful discharge of a firearm in a grossly negligent manner, Newport Beach Police Department explained in a press release on Thursday.

There were no reported injuries.

Police received a report of shots fired inside a residence in the 700 block of Marigold Avenue in Corona del Mar at 8:01 p.m. Wednesday.

Officers responded to the residence and the Crisis Response Unit (which includes the SWAT Team and the Crisis Negotiation Team) was activated to address the suspect.

Around 8:30 p.m., police sent out a Nixle alert warning residents in the area to stay indoors and for others to avoid the area.

Authorities were already on the scene and the situation was still developing, police reported in the message.

“Officers determined that the suspect had discharged a firearm inside an inhabited dwelling, but that there were no associated injuries,” the press release reads. “All subjects other than the suspect eventually left the residence.”

At approximately 9:45 p.m., Rosten exited the home and surrendered to officers.  He was taken into custody without incident and arrested.

He was being held on $25,000 bail.
