Octavious J. Krohn, 18, is tentatively charged with first-degree reckless endangering safety, and Jontrae M. Larsen, 17, is tentatively charged with being a party to first-degree reckless endangering safety and eluding.

The shots were reported in the 5000 block of Milwaukee Street about 7 a.m. Witnesses heard more than a dozen shots, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said.

Officers recovered shell casings and found a home and car that were hit by several bullets, DeSpain said. A dark blue van with tape over a side window was spotted driving away from the scene.

Detectives found the getaway van, which had crashed in the front yard of a home on Todd Drive near Post Road, DeSpain said. Detectives and officers searched the area and located the two suspects in an area home.
