Gun Play: Phillip Forston, 24, and Brandon Fletcher, 25, were arrested Wednesday morning after gunshots were fired in the 600 block of Oliver Avenue. Police say detectives from the Street Crimes Unit were patrolling the city around 12:30 a.m. when ShotSpotter detected gunfire on Oliver Avenue. When police arrived on-scene, they found .380 caliber shell casings and then encountered Fletcher and Forston. Police say further investigation led them to a house near the location of the gunfire, and a K-9 later searched the home and found a .380 caliber handgun inside a rear bedroom and 13 live rounds of ammunition in a box near the gun. Forston and Fletcher are both charged with weapons offenses.
