Police believe the two men know each other.

Ray Sharkey appeared in court Monday on charges that include possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He remained in custody on Tuesday.

“Whenever we are dealing with firearms in the community being used in such a brazen manner there is an inherent risk that needs to be managed,” said Const. Maury Tyre.
