Arrest made in connection with Lewiston gunfire

The Associated Press

LEWISTON — Police have made in arrest in connection with gunfire at a Lewiston apartment complex last week.

Police and federal agents arrested 27-year-old Tyone Jones, originally of Brooklyn, N.Y., in Turner on Tuesday and charged him with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

No one was hurt as a result of the gunfire last Friday at the River Valley Village apartments, but residents say they were rattled.

Witnesses tell the Sun Journal it appeared bullets hit the side of an apartment building and struck a nearby trash bin.

The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

Jones was taken to the Androscoggin County Jail.

The shooting remains under investigation and there may be more arrests.
