CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Police have arrested two men after 1 of them was spotted firing a gun in downtown Charleston.
Charleston Police Department officers were called to a neighborhood after someone called 911 saying a man was firing a rifle toward an overpass.
It turned out to be a BB gun and there were no reported injuries.
But 21-year-old Phillip Joseph Popoff was charged with firing a spring gun. 47-year-old Bryan Allen Matzke is charged with trespassing.
A police report says Popoff told officers they were shooting at birds at the overpass with the Daisy BB gun they had purchased from a pawn shop earlier Tuesday.
It was not clear if the Charleston men have lawyers.
