Shots fired on North St.
No one injured; two arrested
Two people were arrested early Monday morning after shots were fired at a home in Newark, police said.
The incident happened at approximately 12:07 a.m. in the unit block of North Street, according to Sgt. Gerald Bryda, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.
William L. Hannah, 23, of New Castle, went to the home to confront resident Cesar B. Carela, 22, regarding a dispute over a vehicle sale, Bryda said. The two men began fighting, and Hannah allegedly got a handgun out of his car and fired four shots toward the house. No one was injured by the gunfire. Police officers responding to 911 calls found Hannah shirtless and bleeding on North College Avenue, said Bryda, who noted Hannah’s injuries were from the fight, not the gunshots.
Officers then searched Carela’s house and found a pound of marijuana. The gun was never found.
Hannah was charged with first-degree burglary, possession of a firearm while under the influence, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, five counts of reckless endangerment and two counts of aggravated menacing. He was committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute in lieu of $39,250 secured bail.
Carela was charged with possession of a controlled substance in a Tier 1 quantity. He was released on $3,000 unsecured bond.
