JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Two men were arrested, accused of shooting guns from a pickup truck while driving through Arlington on Saturday night.

Jose Grimaldo, 26, and Ignacio Grimaldo, 19, were both charged with discharging a firearm from a vehicle after an officer at a gas station on Atlantic Boulevard heard seven to 10 gunshots and then the sound of tires spinning.

The officer saw a Chevrolet Silverado speeding away and while following the vehicle near Debutante Drive, he heard another four or five shots fired.

More officers and some K-9s were called out to help with a traffic stop.

According to the police report, officers saw a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun laying on the floor behind the driver’s seat. There was another loaded gun magazine on the center armrest and another .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol under the passenger seat.

There was no report of anyone struck by the gunfire, but evidence technicians found bullet casings on the street.

Both were released on $25,000 bond.
