A Gulfport man has been arrested on two counts of aggravated assault after he fired shots into an occupied vehicle, police say.

Chief Leonard Papania said in a news release that 28-yea-old Antwion Jermaine Curry was arrested Aug. 10.

Papania said officers responded Aug. 9 to a call of a firearm discharged in the 2000 block of 41st Avenue, which is south of the Naval Construction Battalion Center. They found a vehicle hit several times by gunshots.

He said police believe Curry was involved in a verbal dispute with one other person before the shooting.

Curry was taken to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center and his bond was set at $500,000 by Judge Brandon Ladner.
