A South Anchorage woman didn’t call police when she heard an argument and a noise from the apartment below.

She changed her mind a few hours later when she saw bullet holes.

Police investigating Sunday night determined that a bullet had passed through her floor and into her ceiling.

Officers checked the apartment below and found a man on a couch, a holster, empty liquor bottles and a shell casing.

After obtaining a search warrant, they found a bullet hole in his ceiling and the gun that apparently made it.

They took the man into custody on suspicion of assault, weapons misconduct, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.

A woman in the lower apartment said she had argued with the man, retreated into a bedroom and heard a shot.
