A pair of Winchester men are facing multiple felony charges after allegedly shooting a house and car earlier this month.

Crayvone Richie, 21, and 23-year-old Justin Meadows, both of 134 Strode Station Circle, are facing five counts each of first-degree wanton endangerment from an incident at 5 Bon Haven Ave.

Crayvone is also charged with receiving stolen property (firearm).

Both men were in Clark District Court Wednesday and waived their cases to the grand jury.

According to court documents, Winchester Police officers responded to a report of shots fired at 1 a.m. Aug. 12.

Officers said they found 10 used ammunition casings in the street and a car with several bullet holes. One bullet went through the residence and stopped in an interior wall.

Though there were five people in the home, no injuries were reported.

Witnesses said a silver car sped away from the scene, without its lights on.

Officers stopped the vehicle on Redwing Drive and found Richie and Meadows inside.

After receiving permission to search the car, officers found three handguns, one of which was reported stolen in 2015, according to the citation. They also found a used casing in the trunk which matched those found at the scene.

Both men are being held in the Clark County Detention Center.

This is the second time Richie and Meadows have been involved in a local shooting.

On Dec. 23, 2014, three other men tried to force their way into Meadows’ apartment on Oxford Drive. Shots were exchanged between Aaron Robinson, who was outside the apartment, and Richie and Meadows.

During the incident, one of the bullets went through the floor and killed 19-year-old Amber Caudill in the apartment below.

Richie and Meadows were wounded, but were not charged.
