Two Columbus teens were arrested after a shot was fired in a mobile home park early Friday morning.
According to the Columbus Police Department, officers were called to Camden Drive at about 12:30 a.m. Friday after a neighbor heard a gunshot. Police arrived and soon found a loud argument inside a mobile home in the 2800 block of Scotland Drive. Outside, they discovered a spent shell casing.
Officers contacted a resident, 18-year-old Kadin Atkins and when police entered the home they reported a strong odor of marijuana inside. Police received a search warrant and a search revealed two handguns, a rifle, bags of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, scales, a money-counting machine as well as nearly $10,000 in cash.
Atkins and another resident 19-year-old Blaine A. Humphrey were both arrested.
Atkins is being accused of criminal recklessness and illegal consumption of alcohol. Humphrey is facing charges of possession of marijuana as well as illegal consumption of alcohol.
The case remains under investigation and police expect more charges to be filed.
