    Three young adults are facing charges after allegedly firing shots in East Hartford late Wednesday morning.

    Kevin Hairston, 20, of Hartford, Julius Marcano, 22, of New Britain and Raphael Cruz, 19, of New Britain, have been identified as suspects.

    Police said shots were fired in the area of 49 Park Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. No one was injured, but police tracked down the suspects’ car and a chase ensued before officers stopped and arrested them.

    Authorities recovered one gun and believe a second may have been thrown off the Founders Bridge into the Connecticut River, according to police. A dive team will search the area.

    The suspects are each facing numerous charges, including narcotics, robbery and firearms offenses, along with engaging officers in pursuit.
