Two sisters were charged Friday in connection with gunfire that police said was the result of a domestic dispute.

A man and woman were threatened with a baseball bat and three shots were fired shortly before 6 p.m. near 239 Stockbridge Ave. in the University District. Nobody was hit, but a sport-utility vehicle parked nearby sustained damage, police said.

Officers were given a description of the car and were told that the women probably were heading toward Michigan Avenue, where they live.

Northeast District Officers Earl Perrin Jr., Michael Bass, Rick Lark and Duane Luchey caught up with them in the 500 block of East Ferry Street. A loaded .22-caliber revolver was recovered.

Billy Jones, 26, of Michigan Avenue was charged with menacing, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon. Her sister and the driver, Carolyn Patton, 30, also of Michigan Avenue, was charged with criminal facilitation.
