VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Two men were caught by police after residents at a Valdosta apartment complex reported that three men were firing guns in the parking lot.

According to the Valdosta Police Department, Anthony Dudley and Devante Dudley were both arrested on Wednesday.

In a police report, officials said that they received several calls from residents at the Park Chase Apartment Complex just before 8:30 p.m. that three men were illegally firing guns in the parking lot of the highly populated apartments.

When police arrived, residents told them that the men took off running.

Valdosta police set up a perimeter and used a K-9 unit to track the suspects.

Police said two firearms and over 7 grams of marijuana "packaged for distribution" were found as a result of the arrest. VPD said one of the firearms that were recovered had been reported stolen out of Hamilton County, Florida.

Police are still searching for the third suspect.
