A 30-year-old Swartz Creek man and a 32-year-old Fenton man are facing multiple felonies after their arrests Saturday, July 17. They have not yet been arraigned.
Lt. Jeff Cross of the Fenton Police Department said at 11:25 p.m., July 17, officers responded to the 2400 block of S. Long Lake Road near Swanee Beach Drive for a report of shots fired.
The responding officer made contact with the complainant who pointed to the direction of where the shots fired came from. The officer approached the area and observed two males sitting in a Chrysler minivan. When the officer made contact with the individuals in the van, he observed several firearms on the floorboard and rear seat in the van.
While questioning the men, they admitted to the officer that they had been out of the van and shooting at a target in the area. Police confiscated five weapons from the minivan and recovered 36 shell casings of multiple calibers.
The men were arrested for shooting firearms in the city. During a search of the van, police recovered suspected marijuana edibles, methamphetamine and heroin from the vehicle. The substances will be tested at the Michigan State Police crime lab to positively identify them.
The case remains under investigation and charges are pending.
