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.
