A second Overland Park teenager has been charged with firing a flare gun into several occupied apartments earlier this year.

18-year-old Luis Fernando Samano was charged Friday with four counts of felony aggravated arson and one misdemeanor theft charge. His bond was set at $500,000.

Police say flares were fired into four apartments Overland Park in April.

All four apartments were occupied at the time, but no one was injured. One fire ignited but it was quickly put out by firefighters.

A 17-year-old was charged in June with four aggravated arson counts in the court's juvenile division.

Samano's first court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
