The incident happened back in October 2012 on the 1400 block of West Rockland Street.
Witnesses reported seeing 27-year-old Ofc. Pharez Morris attempting to get into an apartment building.
After failing to get in, witnesses say Morris pulled out a gun and shot at the building multiple times.
No one was injured. After firing the shots, a woman came and let Morris inside.
Police say an investigation revealed that shortly after the shooting, Morris placed a fake 9-1-1 call to divert authorities.
Morris turned himself into Internal Affairs on Friday afternoon and faces charges including unlawful discharge.
The six-year veteran is also suspended from the force with intent to dismiss.
