Reginald Rogerickus Chachere has been arrested for discharging a firearm within the city limits and carrying a concealed dangerous weapon.

According to scanner traffic police were dispatched for a shots fired call in the area of Leech and South Rustin at about 1:16 AM.

We also received this message from Ashley Bowman this morning.

Woken up from a dead sleep, around 1:15am (roughly) due to gun shots. It happened so fast, that by the time we looked out our blinds, there was nothing out there. Shortly after, Cops checking houses and vehicles for bullet holes... Lovely. Cops found 13 shells (from what we heard) in the street. One shell, being right by our vehicle. Way too close for comfort. We were informed that the person is in custody.

Want to give a shout out to the officers who responded quickly and put their lives on the line. Thank you for what you do each and every day. ALSO, to the families of officers, thank you for your love and support to the officers. You are all very strong individuals and I give you props!

Here's to no sleep tonight
