Two Manchester, New Hampshire brothers were arrested Wednesday after they were allegedly involved in a drive-by shooting incident in Nashua.
Around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday, a Nashua Police officer was driving south on Main Street toward Pratt Street when he heard what he believed to be three gunshots. Within seconds, the officer saw a white Dodge Avenger accelerate through a stop sign on Pratt Street at Main Street. The vehicle proceeded north on Main Street. The officer was able to pull up behind the vehicle and conduct a motor vehicle stop. Other officers came to the location to assist. As the officers were talking with the occupants of the vehicle, three other people approached them and advised them that the two men in the vehicle had just fired a weapon at them as they were standing in the area of 10-12 Pratt St.
Police initially believed the occupants of the vehicle were Darrius Weekly, 20, of 38 Orange St., Apt. 1 and his brother, Darrion Weekly, 19, of 219 Notre Dame Ave., Apt. 3N, who were both arrested by Nashua Police.
Through further investigation, Darrius Weekly was identified as David Weekly, 18, of the same address.
David Weekly is charged with criminal liability to attempt first degree assault and criminal liability to reckless conduct, in addition to unsworn falsification. Darrion Weekly is charged with attempted first degree assault and reckless conduct. Police said additional charges are expected to be filed against both men. They are scheduled to be arraigned in Nashua District Court on Thursday.
Police said they have since learned that there were four people in a vehicle outside 10-12 Pratt St., and as two of them exited the vehicle, shots were fired at them from the vehicle driven by the Weekly brothers. One round went through the window of 12 Pratt St. The residents were home at the time, but were not injured. One person broke his arm when he was accidentally run over by the vehicle he had gotten out of as the driver tried to leave the area.
At this time, police said the relationship between the Weeklys and the intended victims is not known. The investigation is ongoing.
