ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Police arrested three teenage boys suspected of firing a gun into an Anchorage home.

The 15-year-old boys were arrested early Thursday after the shooting in the city's Muldoon neighborhood. No one was injured in the shooting.

Police said the teens went to the home late Wednesday night to confront another boy who had fought with one of their friends earlier.

The boy inside the home refused to come out. One of the 15-year-olds pulled out a semiautomatic pistol and fired it at least four times into the balcony area of the home, police said.

Several windows were broken.

Officers found the three juveniles at one of the boys' homes early Thursday, police said.

The boys were arrested on multiple counts of assault and taken to McLaughlin Youth Center.
