LEWISTON — Two men were arrested early Wednesday in connection with gunshots fired on the street from a car, police said.
Brandon Audette, 21, and Frank Pomerleau, 18, of 378 Randall Road, were each charged with three felony counts of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge. Pomerleau also was charged with violation of condition of release, police said.
Police said the two men were in a car when they fired the shots at around 5 a.m.
A Bradley Street resident said he heard shots fired near his apartment. He looked outside and saw a red Chevrolet Cavalier drive slowly down the street. He called police and reported the vehicle.
Police responded to the scene within a minute, the man said.
"I was absolutely impressed," he said. "I'm giving them a high-five on this one."
He said police found three shell casings on the ground near his apartment and circled them in chalk.
A short time later, police stopped a vehicle fitting that description on Autumn Lane and arrested the two men.
Police said they recovered a 9 mm handgun.
