When police arrived, they saw one man passing a long barreled gun to people in a nearby vehicle. Officers took the man who had the gun into custody and arrested him. The gun was recovered from the scene.
A 20-year-old man is charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, and possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized.
The accused will make his appearance in Provincial Court on Monday.
