Police eventually arrested 29-year-old Michael Krizanek and Jerome Javier Ross, 34, both of whom live at the Main Street apartment.

According to the police report, responding officers heard the two say “What are you going to do, shoot me”? and “I swear to God, I’m not lying.”

Both are being charged with disturbing the peace, but the police report does not indicate that either had a firearm when arrested.
