Two arrested in gunshot incident

Sheriff's deputies investigating a homeowner's complaint that his house had been shot at arrested two 22-year-olds in connection with the crime.

Police said a resident of Boston Road reported that shots had been fired at his home late in the night of June 1. A suspect, Travis Parsons, 22, of Pocomoke, was identified, police said, but a 90-minute search of the area failed to find him, although Parsons had been seen on foot nearby at the time of the shooting.
Sheriff's deputies then set up a watch of Parsons' truck. When Parsons and another man, Stephen Petitt, 22, of Pocomoke, appeared at the truck and drove off around 3:20 a.m., police pulled them over and made the arrests.
Parsons was charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Police said Petitt was charged with obstructing and hindering their investigation. Both men were released on their own recognizance after seeing a court commissioner.
