(ABC 6 News) - Two people are now in custody after a drive by shooting Wednesday afternoon in Rochester. Police say the shooting is believed to be connected to another shooting in Rochester a couple weeks ago.

Police say an apartment manager, who oversees a complex on the 2100 block of Highway 14 East, reported bullet holes in two of his apartments.

Police say the bullet holes were found in a window and wall of a vacant apartment. More bullet holes were found in the wall of another apartment as well as a nearby vehicle.

Authorities eventually found a vehicle believed to be involved in the shooting. A traffic stop of that vehcile lead to the arrest of Emi Spandau, of Rochester.

Police say they recovered a handgun from another vehicle on the 1200 block of 4 ½ Street NW. A 17-year-old male, associated with the car, was arrested and is being held at the juvenile detention center.

Police say these acts were not random and are believed to be part of an ongoing dispute.
