LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they have arrested a suspect after a family was held at gunpoint during an alleged home invasion in east Louisville late last year.

According to an arrest warrant, it happened Nov. 12 at a home in the 600 block of Old Harrods Creek Road near Anchorage. Police say 19-year-old Tyler Clooney and another suspect were armed with a gun when they forced their way inside.

Nine people -- including four children -- were asleep inside when a woman answered a knock at the door. That's when police say Clooney and the other suspect forced their way inside, demanding pills.

Police say the second suspect held a gun to the woman's head, before knocking her to the floor and firing a shot into the ceiling while continuing to demand pills. 

According to police, the two searched the home before grabbing a TV and tablet, but dropped both items as they were leaving. 

Clooney was arrested July 5. He's charged with robbery and wanton endangerment, both felonies. He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $75,000 full cash bond.
