There are many different sonic distace sensors, some super cheap ones for $2 like the HC-SR04(still great) and some big bad ones like this https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9496.

Using an array of sonic sensors, pointing in all directions, it could possible to identify the direction of a noise, especially one as loud as a gun.

Pretty weak on the details but yes, an Arduino is plenty fast for it.
