Two men are facing charges after shots were fired from two vehicles Wednesday afternoon on Charleston's West Side.

Nhut Le, 21, and Shawn Le, 24, were arrested Wednesday after several shots were fired in the Glenwood Avenue area of Charleston, according to the Charleston Police Department.

Just before 4 p.m. Charleston police officers responded to a complaint of a Vietnamese man driving around in a black SUV firing shots in the area of Glenwood Avenue and Sixth Street.

During the investigation, officers found multiple shell casings and the suspect's vehicle parked in the 1000 block of Grant Avenue.

Nhut Le was then located in a residence in the area, according to the release. Inside the home, police found two firearms and methamphetamine.

The release said Nhut Le had three active Charleston Municipal Court warrants for driving related offenses and was arrested.

During the same time frame, the release said officers located Shawn Le, who is Nhut Le's cousin, on foot in the area. Police discovered Shawn Le had an active burglary warrant and took him into custody.

The release said Nhut Le had gotten into an argument with an unknown male when the two exchanged gunfire. Nhut Le put two guns and methamphetamine in his yard before the officer arrived, the release said.

Nhut Le is charged with wanton endangerment, possession with intent to deliver, and three municipal warrants.

Shawn Le is charged with burglary.
