DeKALB – Two brothers suspected of shooting into a crowded parking lot during a late-night party were in the DeKalb County Jail on Monday.

David B. Holt, 17, and Jerry D. Holt, 20, both of the 1600 block of Wild Rose Lane in Aurora, were charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and reckless discharge of a firearm. The more serious charge, aggravated discharge of a firearm, is typically punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

No one was injured during the incident.

The brothers were at a party about 1:51 a.m. July 27 in an apartment at 830 Greenbrier Road in DeKalb, authorities said. An argument broke out and spilled into the apartment complex’s parking lot, DeKalb police Lt. Bob Redel said. Shots were fired from an apartment balcony into the crowd in the parking lot, Redel said.

David Holt told police he fired the shots, but police were still investigating Monday who was responsible, authorities said. Police found shell casings at the scene.

David Holt is due in court Today. Jerry Holt is next due in court Aug. 15. Bond for each was set at $250,000, which requires posting $25,000 to be released while the case is pending.
