The incident occurred early Sunday morning, when Troopers were dispatched to the 5000 block of Smyrna Leipsic Road, Smyrna for a report of shots fired.  Upon arrival, Troopers made contact with residents who advised that an unknown female entered their driveway in a vehicle, followed immediately by another vehicle occupied by several male subjects.  The occupants in both vehicles began arguing about a road rage incident.  The residents asked the individuals to leave the property at which time they left.

Shortly thereafter, it was reported that the subjects returned to the area, when an occupant from one of the vehicles fired two round towards the other vehicle.

As Troopers were on scene, the suspect vehicle passed by and was immediately identified by witnesses. Troopers attempted to stop the vehicle, when the operator failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.  The vehicle eventually came to a stop and the driver and passenger were subsequently taken into custody without further incident.  There were no reports of injuries as a result of this incident.

Speed was charged with Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited and 3 counts of Reckless Endanger First Degree, plus several other counts.  He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $29,850.00 secured bond.

Peer was charged with 3 counts of Reckless Endanger First Degree and Conspiracy Second Degree. He was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and released on $3,500.00 unsecured bond.
