Three arrested after shots are fired in Redstone
June 21, 2012
Three men were arrested early Thursday morning after firing numerous shots near Redstone Town Center following an altercation at a nearby residence.
According to Summit County Sheriff Dave Edmunds, deputies responded to a fight-in-progress call at 3:15 a.m. on North Fox Pointe Circle. As deputies were in route, numerous calls came in from neighbors reporting that shots had been fired.
“We think, as the three suspects were attempting to leave in their vehicle they began firing indiscriminately out of the window,” Edmunds said. “A bullet did strike a condo unit that was unoccupied, but no one was injured. When deputies arrived they immediately apprehended one suspect but the other two fled on foot.”
Edmunds said deputies and a police dog chased down the other suspects and arrested them in the Redstone area. All three suspects were in custody 20 minutes after the first call was received.
According to a press release, a large-caliber pistol and five shell casings were located inside the suspect’s vehicle. The three suspects were not residents of Summit County and have extensive criminal histories.
“All three of the suspects were very inebriated and were leaving a party where, we think, a lot of drinking was happening,” Edmunds said. “They appeared to just be firing their weapon, not necessarily in connection with the fight that had occurred inside.”
