Police say 20-year-old Keon Anderson, 21-year-old Keion Dodds and 23-year-old David Pearson drove to an apartment at that location and began firing at a man and a woman. According to arrest reports, bullets went through windows and walls at several nearby apartments -- apartments police say were occupied at the time of the shootings.
One of the victims was later able to identify Anderson, Dodds and Pearson from a lineup of photos, according to the arrest reports.
