LODI (CBS13) — A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after gunshots were fired in a Lodi neighborhood near the city's Parade of Lights on Thursday night.

Lodi police say officers assigned to the Parade of Lights responded to the area of Oak and Sacramento streets just before 7:30 p.m. to investigate a report of gunshots being heard.
