The driver, Amy Sharafan, 36, of Youngstown, was placed in a cruiser and was cited for driving under suspension, reports said.

Her passenger, Michael Young, 32, of Youngstown, was arrested on the charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and shooting into a habitation, reports said. Reports said the gun was found in the back of the SUV.

In front of the Hilton Avenue home police found several shell casings, including some .45-caliber and 9mm casings, reports said.

No one was injured.

Wait a minute, maybe they were just driving around with the windows down enjoying the cool night air and then someone pulled up next to them and threw the gun into the SUV.

Maybe we can use that scenario as a defense!!! Should allow a plea deal, after all, we are known for plea deals. Prevents overcrowding in the slammer!!!
