A 19-year-old man faces two counts of attempted murder along with firearm charges after shots were allegedly fired June 7 at a vehicle in the 600 block of College Avenue.

Police said they were called to the area at 5 a.m. that day.

"Responding members learned that a verbal dispute between two parties had occurred earlier in the evening," said Const. Jason Michalyshen. "One of the parties had left and then returned a short while later, at which time a male produced a firearm and shot at their vehicle, striking it several times"

Michalyshen said that the driver and his female passenger were not injured, and fled the scene.

The investigation continued by members of the Major Crimes Unit and as a result the male suspect was identified, located, and arrested Thursday.

The investigation is still on-going.
