Two teenagers were charged with a series of felonies for an incident in which one of the pair emptied a handgun into house.
Leonard Taylor, 18, and Kenneth Byrd, 17, were charged Wednesday for the July 24 incident.
Taylor was charged with two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, endangering safety by reckless use of a firearm and two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Byrd was charged with being a party to a crime to the same recklessly endangering safety charges and one count of possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent.
According to the criminal complaint, the state alleges that Taylor shot at a home in the 6800 block of 20th Avenue on July 24, emptying the clip of a 9 mm handgun into the house, because he was angry at one of the residents of the house, believing he had stolen another handgun from him.
According to the complaint, Taylor had loaned the gun to the resident earlier in the day, but later in the day he received a text from the resident “stating Leonard was not going to be getting the gun back (with a clown emoji).”
The complaint states Byrd allegedly went with Taylor to the 20th Avenue house to try to get the gun back. When they were unable to speak to the person they were looking for, Byrd is alleged to have given Taylor the gun he used to shoot the house.
Taylor is being held on $25,000 bond, Byrd on $20,000.
