2 arrested for opening fire on Pottstown home, police say

POTTSTOWN, Pa. (WPVI) -- Police in Montgomery County have arrested two people who allegedly opened fire on a Pottstown family's home last month.

Ahnile Fountain and Makael Bevins are facing more than 130 counts each, including attempted murder and weapons charges.

Police believe the men, who are both 19, shot up a house along the 500 block of West Street back on March 24.

The family who lives there says the shooting stemmed from a case of bullying.

Marie Samba told police a group of girls came to their home and taunted her 13-year-old daughter, following weeks of harassment at Pottstown Middle School.

She says bullets started hitting the house ten minutes after the girls left.
