Both were charged with five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and one count of receiving stolen property (firearm) following the incident.

Richie and Meadows each pleaded guilty to one count of wanton endangerment and receiving stolen property.

Prosecutors recommended they serve one year for each count, to run consecutively.

Their sentencing hearing was scheduled for Nov 14.

According to police records, officers responded to a report of shots fired at 5 Bon Haven Ave. around 1 a.m. Aug. 12, 2017.

Officers found 10 used ammunition casings outside a home and a car with several bullet holes in it.

One of the bullets went through a residence with five people inside, but no one was injured.

Witnesses reported seeing a silver car fleeing the scene, which officers located later on Redwing Drive.

During their search of the car, the officers found three handguns, one of which had been reported stolen, and another ammunition casing which matched those at the scene.

Both men were allowed to remain free on bond.
