Macon police arrested three people on Bob-o-link Drive on Saturday night on various charges after the city’s STRIKE team found them participating in celebratory gunfire in front of a house, according to a police news release.
The STRIKE team officers heard shots from the south Macon house while on patrol and found several males and females standing around a carport. When they saw the officers, they turned and ran.
The officers entered the house and found 13 firearms, including shotguns, an assault pistol, a revolver and semi-automatic pistols. Several of the weapons were stolen.
