After unsuccessfully calling the residents, three people came out before 3 a.m. after verbally challenging them. Two children were found inside the home sleeping. No injuries were reported.

After a search warrant was in place after 5 a.m., police say they found shell casings from a .45 caliber handgun outside of the home. An AK-47 assault rifle and a .45 caliber handgun was found.

27-year-old Andre L. Dozer has been arrested for reckless endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia. 23-year-old Nathan A. Meehan-Hill has been arrested for reckless endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and a probation hold.

Additional charges may still be pending. The investigation remains ongoing.
