Wellsville incident

At 1:30 a.m. June 6, gunshots where fired on Commerce Street between the 11th and 12th blocks. Several shell casings where recovered and witness identified two males shooting at each other. At 2:20 p.m. officers observed a sedan make a hand to hand transaction at a house known for drug activity on Commerce Street. Officers initiated a traffic stop after the sedan failed to use a turn signal. Officers smelled the odor of marijuana and asked if there was marijuana in the vehicle. The driver was identified as Cheyenne Garvis and two passengers identified as Dacious Coles and Antwan Curnell. Coles ran. A witness watched Coles drop a gun while officers chased him. The loaded 9mm handgun is believed to be a gun used in the shooting earlier in the day, and is at the lab being tested. Coles was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of official business, failure to comply with orders of a peace officer and carrying a weapon under disability because he is a convicted felon and on parole. When officers arrived back to the sedan they found Curnell had fled after being told to stay with the vehicle. Officers found Curnell hiding in a house on Commerce, and he was arrested and charged with obstructing official business and failure to comply with the order of a peace officer. Both Coles and Curnell were transported to jail. Cheyenne Garvis was released with no charges and Rachel Lawson, the owner of the house Curnell was hiding in, will have a warrant put out for her arrest for obstruction.
