A teenager arrested after allegedly firing shots in an Olathe neighborhood Saturday was charged Monday with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, among other charges.

A relative of the teen also was accused Monday of threatening a police officer with a shovel during the same incident.

The incident occurred Saturday afternoon in the 100 block of Pasadena Drive. Olathe police said they were called to the area on reports that someone fired multiple gunshots while walking through the neighborhood.

Officers found a male holding a firearm. At one point, an Olathe officer fired his weapon, but no one was injured.
