APPLETON (WLUK) -- We're learning more about an incident Thursday that led to shots being fired on Appleton's south side.

Police say it started as a fight between two men outside an apartment on W. Schindler Place. The half-brother of one of the fighters fired at the other man and continued firing as the man ran off. At least six round were fired in all.

Several of the bullets went through the walls of a nearby apartment. A couple and their young children were in that apartment, but were not hurt.

Appleton police later caught up with the shooter and his half-brother. Officers believe the gun was tossed into the Fox River in the area of the S. Lawe Street bridge, and a search for the gun continues.

The suspected shooter was identified as 32-year-old David Hall of Appleton. Police are requesting charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, being a felon in possession of a gun, eluding officers and six counts of recklessly endangering safety.

Hall's half-brother, 24-year-old Terry M. Hooks of Appleton, was also arrested. Police are requesting charges of obstructing, being a felon in possession of a gun, damage to property and disorderly conduct.

No formal charges have been filed.

Meanwhile, police say they have identified several other people involved in the original fight. Officers are also looking for additional evidence at the apartment building.

More charges are expected as the investigation continues, police say.
