Two jailed for firing handgun

When the official fireworks stopped in Syracuse Thursday night, two Goshen men reportedly decided to keep the festivities going.

And that landed both in jail.

According to Syracuse Police Chief Tony Ciriello, police were called to Lake Street north of Main Street around 11:16 p.m. There, William J. Rose, 24, and Matthew S. Rhodes, 22, were allegedly taking turns firing shots into the air with a .9mm semi-automatic handgun.

Police said that 11 shots were fired.

Ciriello said the men got the gun from a vehicle and were standing in the middle of Lake Street as they were firing off shots.

Both men were booked into Kosciusko County Jail on charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and held on $5,000 bond.

Ciriello said that as of Friday afternoon, no reports of damage from the stray bullets were reported.
