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.
