Shots rang out at J.H. Rose High School on Saturday night, and when Greenville police officers arrived on the scene at 10:49 p.m., they found a black sedan occupied by five men attempting to leave campus, a department spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
Officers initiated a traffic stop at the school, located at 600 W. Arlington Blvd., and found two guns inside the vehicle, department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said. Officers also located several shell casings on Marvin Jarmin Road.
An incident report indicates the weapons were a .22-caliber rifle and .40-caliber handgun. The report also indicates 14 .22-caliber shell casings with “super” stamped into them were seized as evidence.
A box of .22-caliber rifle ammunition also was seized.
Joel Rashad Holden, 18, and Nyquan Lamont Nelson, 19, were charged as a result of the stop.
Holden is charged with discharging a firearm in city limits and having a weapon on educational property. Hunter said it does not appear Holden was shooting at anyone or anything in particular. Nelson is charged with having a firearm on educational property.
Holden was jailed on a $2,500 bond. Bond information for Nelson was unavailable.
