Police arrest man, find gun and shot-up vehicle after 'shots fired' call

Police found a Luger wrapped in a sock, nine shell casings and a shot-up Mercury Mountaineer early Sunday morning when they responded to a call of 'shots fired' on Easton Avenue near Bailey Avenue.

Police said when they arrived on the scene they spotted Thomas Duncan, 24, of Easton Avenue, who matched the description given by a caller. Police said he refused officers' commands and became aggressive and combative when they attempted to approach him. Police said Duncan was "forcibly taken to the floor and handcuffed."

In the back yard of the residence, police found a .22-caliber Luger wrapped in a sock, and in the front yard they found nine .45-caliber spent shell casings. They said a 2004 blue Mercury Mountaineer parked nearby was found to have bullet holes in the front and back windshields, causing an estimated $500 damage.

Duncan has been changed with third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and first-degree reckless endangerment, all felonies; and second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors.
