Gunman arrested in Kalamazoo's Edison Neighborhood


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- They were heavily armed and potentially dangerous, but they quickly discarded their weapons when Public Safety arrived and made a run for it.

9-1-1 got a complaint at 12:30 this morning that shots had been fired in the Race and Clinton Street area in the Edison neighborhood.

The suspects had apparently confronted two citizens returning home from work with the guns, firing them into the air.

One was a .357 handgun stolen in Portage and the other was an AK-47 style rifle.Arriving officers saw the pair leave, one with something slung over his shoulder.

TheY chased down the suspects, and then found their discarded guns.

The 20 and 21-year-olds will face multiple gun felonies.
