OKLAHOMA CITY -

A man accused of opening fire in Edmond's Mitch Park is now behind bars. 

Police arrested 21-year-old Dravius Moore after shots rang out during a YMCA Trunk or Treat event Friday night. No one was hit.

Moore was arrested on a complaint of felony discharging of a firearm into a building, use of a firearm while committing a felony and trafficking in illegal drugs.

Parents took to Facebook claiming they witnessed the chaos unfold. According to parents, they were notified by email that swim classes Saturday morning had been canceled.

Several windows are now covered in cardboard after police confirmed several shots were fired into the YMCA.

"I had a front row view of what happened,” a woman on Facebook said, in part. "A group of men came out of the Y, they were exchanging words, yelling. One male got into his car started driving erratically with a few back-and-forth's and U-turns then started firing.”  

Another woman said people had to hit the ground when they heard shots, claiming,

“An entire swim team in the YMCA had to take active shooter precautions when bullets came flying at them."

Edmond police said some aspects of the case are still under investigation. Detectives plan on meeting with the district attorney in the coming weeks.
