NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) -

Two men were arrested following a report of a shot being fired in New London Monday night.

Police said they arrested 20-year-old Aaron Baldwin and 21-year-old Jonathan Felix, both of New London.

Officers responded to the area of 55 Eastern Ave. just before 9 p.m. following the report.

After they arrived, they learned that a green Ford Aerostar van was involved and had left.

They also discovered that the people involved knew each other and that the incident was between them.

Police said they found the van traveling on Tilley Street.

The driver of the van, later identified as Felix, pulled over and approached officers, who were able to take him into custody. He was found to be in possession of a stun gun weapon, officers said.

As police secured Felix, they said someone else took the van and drove away down Tilley Street.

The van was found in a Holiday Inn parking lot on Governor Winthrop Boulevard.

About 35 minutes later, police said the man believed to be the suspected shooter arrived at the police department in an attempt to bond out the first man they arrested.

Baldwin was also taken into custody.

Police said they seized the van and its contents.

Baldwin was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal attempt at first-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangerment. He's being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Felix was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon. Police said he was also cited for possession of marijuana. His bond was set at $50,000.

Police said they expected to make additional arrests.
