Manchester brothers arrested after drive-by shooting in Nashua
"This was a drive-by shooting," said Lt. Denis Linehan of the Nashua Police Department, adding no one was hit during the incident on Pratt Street.
A police officer who was driving on Main Street around 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday heard three gunshots and quickly observed a white Dodge Avenger accelerate through a stop sign from Pratt Street onto Main Street.
Police conducted a vehicle stop, at which time three people approached authorities claiming the occupants of the vehicle had just fired a gun at them.
"We have at least three gunshots. We don't believe it was any more than that," said Linehan.
The occupants of the vehicle, Darrius and Darrion Weekly, were arrested for the shooting.
Darrius Weekly is alleged to have been driving the vehicle while Darrion Weekly is alleged to have fired the handgun.
Darrius Weekly, 20, of 38 Orange St., Apt. 1, Manchester, was charged with criminal liability to attempted first-degree assault and criminal liability to reckless conduct, both felonies.
Darrion Weekly, 19, of 219 Notre Dame Ave., apt. 3N, Manchester, was charged with attempted first-degree assault and reckless conduct, both felonies.
Linehan said the Weeklys drove by just after two of the victims exited a car in the area of 10-12 Pratt St., and were then standing on the sidewalk. Although none of the three bullets hit bystanders, one did break a window at 12 Pratt St., which was occupied at the time.
One person did sustained a broken arm when he was accidentally run over by the car he was exiting as the driver attempted to leave the area, according to police.
The handgun allegedly used in the shooting was had yet to be recovered Wednesday afternoon, however authorities were obtaining a search warrant for Weekly's vehicle.
Authorities are still trying to determine the relationship between the Weeklys and the intended victims, said Linehan, adding the investigation continues.
Both men are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
Earlier this year, Darrius Weekly was arrested in Manchester and charged with a count of riot following a street fight on Laurel Street. His brother, Darrion Weekly, was arrested and charged with a count of riot after a June incident involving about 25 people near Hunt Pool in Manchester.
