Four male suspects from Drew were arrested in relation to gunshots fired in Cleveland Saturday around 11:30 p.m.

Cleveland Police Chief Buster Bingham said there was confusion from the public that the shootings occurred at the county fair at the Bolivar County Expo but he confirmed they took place off premises around First Street and Martin Luther King Drive.

Bingham added that no one was hurt in the incident and it was a case of poor decision making from the young suspects.

"All the shots were fired into the air," said Bingham. "No buildings were shot at, no cars, no people. It's just a case of knuckleheaded activity."

Two juvenile suspects were arrested for discharging a firearm within the city limits.

One of the juveniles was also charged with malicious mischief and escape after he broke out the back window of the police car.

He was caught again shortly after.

According to the report, officers also found several guns inside the vehicle of suspect Deangelo Williams, 19.

Williams was charged with discharging a firearm within city limits and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Bingham said the investigation determined that once the juvenile discharged the weapon, an adult suspect in another vehicle picked him up.

The adult was Bobby Harris, 20. He was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Bingham said this type of behavior would not be tolerated in Cleveland.

"We will not stand for this behavior," he said. "If something like this happens we will prosecute in every possible way."
