Authorities, including the SWAT team, responded to a report of possible gunshots in the 100-block of Conklin at around 1:30 p.m. May 18 and converged on an apartment building.

Police say they have charged Timothy Boulton with disorderly conduct for allegedly setting off a homemade firework on the first floor of the apartment building.

There were no reports of injuries but the large police response disrupted traffic in the area for several hours.
