NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Police arrested two men after shots rang out Thursday afternoon south of the downtown Noblesville government and business district.

Anthony N. Sanchez, 23, and Jesus A. Sanchez, 42, both of Noblesville, each face a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. Sanchez faces additional preliminary charges of criminal recklessness (shooting into a dwelling), and operating while intoxicated.

Police began receiving calls around 5 p.m. Thursday of shots fired in the residential area between Fourth and Sixth streets, and Washington and Division streets.
