CARBONDALE – Two people were arrested following an early Sunday morning incident in Carbondale.
According to Carbondale Police, around 2:20 a.m., officers were in the 200 block of West Main Street monitoring a large crowd at bar closing when they saw a fight break out. As officers moved through the crowd to stop the fight, they saw 36-year-old Travis L. Wooley of Carbondale armed with a firearm. Wooley fled from officers but was quickly captured after a brief foot chase.
While officers were taking Wooley into custody, several shots were fired from the area where the fight originally happened. Other officers arrived in the area but the suspects weren’t located.
Officers arrested Wooley for Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon by a Felon and Resisting or Obstructing a Peace Officer.
Police said 28-year-old Iesha R. Carter of Carbondale was also arrested for Obstructing Justice and Resisting a Peace Officer after she repeatedly interfered with officers’ attempts to arrest Wooley. Wooley and Carter were lodged in the Jackson County Jail.
There were no injuries or property damage found as a result of the shots fired.
