NILES, Mich. – Two suspects, including a man accused of opening fire at a number of people Thursday morning in Niles, were arrested later that night at a South Bend address. The gun believed to be used in the crime was also found hidden at the home, say police.
Officers were called to 872 Carberry Rd. in Howard Township just before noon Thursday.
A person called 911, saying they had seen someone shooting at individuals in a yard.
When officers got to the scene, they found nobody had been hurt, but police were able to confirm that an argument had occurred. One of the people involved walked to a car, pulled out a handgun and began shooting.
Police say the shooter was then driven away by another person.
The suspects are 21-year-old Anthony Bostick and 21-year-old Kayla Johnson, both of Niles. Police arrested them Thursday night without incident at a home in the 1600 block of S. Marine Street in South Bend.
"Both suspects are being held in the St. Joseph County Jail pending extradition to Cass County, MI," according to a news release issued Friday morning. "Bostick, who is on parole out of Michigan, is being held for attempted murder and violation of his parole while Johnson is being charged with aiding and abetting on a felony crime. Additional charges to follow as the investigation proceeds."
