Idiot discharges handgun on High Street

In an act of utter stupidity, a moron named Juan Xavier Maldonado shot his gun into the air several times on High Street after an argument.
A 20-year-old Millville man was arrested early Sunday on charges he repeatedly shot a revolver in the air outside a North High Street home following a confrontation.

Juan Xavier Maldonado, of the 1700 block of East Broad Street, was arrested Sunday and charged with simple assault, possession of weapons for unlawful purposes and unlawful possession of a handgun, police said.
A group of people was gathered at a home on the 300 block of North High Street home when one man, whose identity is unknown, was asked to leave around 3:45 a.m., according to a police report released Monday.
A North High Street home? This "home' had to have been an apartment above one of the stores. The nail salon maybe? The city need to take action, talk to the owner of the building, and ask him if his tenants were properly screened before he rented the apartment.

There is absolutely no excuse for this sort of activity in the middle of the arts district. And there is no excuse for landlords to rent to idiots, when there are many respectable people that would be happy to rent a space in the middle of the district.
