(KAIR)--The sound of gunfire sends Atchison Police to the city's 9th and Laramie Streets Tuesday night, and leads to the arrest of three in connection with what Police Chief Mike Wilson says was an attempt to threaten two residents in the 500 block of North 9th Street. "As our officers arrived in the area, it was learned that two men had been threatened with firearms in an apartment complex in the 500 block of North 9th. The two victims, aged 23 and 25, reported that four men appeared outside their apartment door making threats, as two of the suspects displayed a handgun and a shotgun. The four suspects then left the apartment area and the victims heard a number of gunshots."

Wilson says it was only a matter of minutes for three of the four suspects, who allegedly fired off their weapons after stepping away from the apartment, to be located.

"They make the threats, with guns in hand, at the door. The victims backed away from the door on the inside. The suspects went to a nearby roadway, and fired off a number of shots as they fled the area. Officers began searching the area, and located three of these suspects on foot, in the 800 block of Division, and they were taken into custody. We have identified a fourth suspect believed to have fled the area in a vehicle."

Arrested were three Atchison residents, 24-year-old Bryan Davis, Jr., 22-year-old Daishon Johnson, and Jameel Kirkland.

All three, facing charges of aggravated assault, were booked into the Atchison County Jail.

Wilson says investigators say the suspects and the victims were acquainted, and believe the incident stemmed from an unspecified, unresolved issue.
