and they were carrying an AR-15 rifle and a 9-millimeter pistol.

There were allegedly 15 shots fired from the handgun, and some hit the house, which had seven people inside.

There were rounds recovered from the home.

After interviewing the men, they admitted to shooting at the residence and did go there with the intent to kill the man who robbed Peterson.

When Mullins was questioned on Saturday, he gave written consent that his vehicle could be search, which was located on Ferguson Hill Road in Lafayette.

While Macon County Sheriff's Department Detective Jacob McClard transported Mullins to the residence, Mullins admitted that there was an illegal AR-15 in the trunk.

Mullins also told McClard that there was approximately $2,000 in the glove compartment.

Mullins was allowed to watch as deputies searched the vehicle. Inside the trunk, there was a fully-automatic AR-15 that had the serial number field off of it.

Inside the glove compartment, there was $1,280.

When Mullins learned of the amount of cash, he said that he bought something with $700 of that cash.

Mullins was interviewed further at the Macon County Sheriff's Office and admitted that he sells marijuana.

After a search warrant was obtained, there was a search of Mullins' apartment. There were narcotics found at the residence, multiple bags of what was believed to be marijuana, a digital scale and similar empty bags. The green, leafy substance weighed 3.51 ounces.

Mullins was charged with attempted homicide, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a schedule VI substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and alteration of serial number. His bond was set at $325,000, and his court date is slated for Dec. 18.

Peterson was charged with attempted homicide and reckless endangerment. His bond was set at $75,000, and his court date is also slated for Dec. 18.
