In with a bang

As midnight approached on New Year’s Eve, police patrolling the south side heard “over 20 gunshots.” About that time residents of the 1100 block of E. Church St. called to say the shooter was firing away outside a nearby home. Police arrived to find a slew of shell casings littering the front yard.

When they entered the home, they found:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An illegal assault weapon. Not to mention the revolver. Police arrested Alejandro Lewis, 34, on multiple weapons charges.

Why this form of celebration is preferable to drinking several bottles of champagne, eating hors d’oeuvres and retiring to your own bed is beyond me. Well, OK, not totally beyond me. Still. Into the air? Not smart.
