4 charged in NH for firing weapons near interstate

The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, N.H. — New Hampshire police say four men are facing charges for target shooting near a heavily traveled interstate highway.

Police responded to a report of gunshots being fired in a wooded area in Manchester near Interstate 93 at about 4 p.m. Saturday and found four men shooting weapons while facing the interstate, less than 100 yards away.

Twenty-seven-year-old Adam Kelly of Tacoma, Wash., 31-year-old Sherif Hashem of Boston, 33-year-old Bryan Sola of Southington, Conn., and 20-year-old Sean Kelly of Windham, N.H., were charged with felony reckless conduct because of the proximity to I-93 and the danger to passing motorists.

Officials seized an assault rifle, two shotguns, three handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The men were released on bail and are scheduled to appear in court in June.
