Police filed several felony charges against a Sixth Street man early Sunday after he allegedly fired a handgun at passing cars on Highland Avenue.
A city man and his wife were heading home just after 2 a.m. when he heard two loud bangs and the rear window of his car shattered, police reported. The man promptly phoned police, who began a search for a red car.
The car was found in the parking lot of Tulip Corp. on Highland Avenue, and police found a loaded handgun with two discharged shells inside. Also recovered were six bags of marijuana and 11 baggies of crack cocaine, police said. Both the vehicle and the gun had been reported stolen.
Joshua Wynn, 22, was subsequently charged with third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and reckless endangerment, police said. Additional charges were pending.
The car, belonging to a Lockport woman, had been stolen a short time earlier from the 3000 block of 23rd Street, police said. State police were checking on the stolen .357 Magnum handgun.
