Members of the SPS Guns and Gangs Unit have charged two teens Friday night following a firearms incident.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., March 10, 2023, members of Patrol were dispatched to an elementary school in the 200 block of Sumner Crescent. It was reported to Police that a group of people had been shot at near a school. Upon arrival, officers located two individuals walking through a park, one of which was holding a shotgun. Both individuals were taken into custody without incident. A sawed-off shotgun, ammunition and an airsoft gun were located at the scene and seized by Police.
