Gunfire and police response in a Mount Olive residential area ended with a man hit and another in jail on a variety of charges.

The April 1 incident resulted in charges of attempted first degree murder, possession of a stolen firearm, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Officers who responded to the call said the victim was 21-year-old Anthony Maurice Owens of 1008 South Church Street. He suffered a gunshot wound and was transported to Wayne Memorial Hospital.

Investigation resulted in charges being filed against 37-year-old Bobby Ray McFadden of 174 Oakley Branch Lane in Warsaw. His bond was set at $250,000.
