Police: Men Fired Rounds From Car in North Greenwich

Greenwich Police said they responded at about 9:30 p.m. to reports from residents about possible gunfire in the vicinity of Round Hill Road and Close Road.

Two men face weapons charges after they allegedly went on a brief shooting spree while driving through North Greenwich on Sunday evening.

No one was injured when Anthony J. Cardile, 22, of 67 Byram Terrace and Patrick Alexander Kelly, 26, of Middletown NY, fired "multiple rounds" from weapons that included an AR-15 assault rifle from their vehicle while driving through the densely-wooded neighborhoods, according to a police report.

Police said they responded at about 9:30 p.m. to reports from residents about possible gunfire in the vicinity of Round Hill Road and Close Road. While en route officers received several more reports from residents in the North Street area about possible gunfire in their neighborhood.

While responding to the North Street area, police observed a red sedan traveling north at a high rate of speed on North Street. After stopping the car near Lower Cross Road, police observed that the operator, Cardile, was exhibiting signs of intoxication. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed an AR-15 assault rifle, three handguns and some ammunition, according to the police report.
