A 15-year-old male juvenile from Lebanon is facing weapon and drug charges after a report of shots being fired late Tuesday night near 615 East Market Street.

The incident occurred about 10:02 p.m., Tuesday.

A news release from the Lebanon Police Department said officers arrived on scene and spoke with the person who filed the complaint. The complainant gave Officer Cody Bryan a description of the suspects she believed had been involved in the incident.

Bryan was quickly able to stop three suspects who matched the description given. The suspects were located in the Inman Court Federal Housing Units which are near the scene of the original call.

Bryan, upon approaching the suspects, saw one of them drop a semi-automatic pistol on the ground. The suspect was taken into custody.

During a subsequent search, Bryan recovered 11 rounds of ammunition, a holster and a small Baggie of marijuana.

The 15-year-old suspect has been charged with Reckless Endangerment, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and Simple Possession of Drugs. The teen also has tattoos that police believe identifies him as a gang member, the news release said.
