Arlington Heights police responded about 12:41 p.m. Friday to a report of shots fired in the area of 0-99 block of North Rammer Avenue. Police arrived immediately and got to work on investigating where the shots were heard and where the guns were fired.

A neighbor heard five shots, and then another shot just before 12:40 p.m. Friday and called 9-1-1. Police did a walk-around at the house and found at least one hole that looked like a bullet hole in a garbage can.

Two teens were found to be inside the home, and came to the door when requested by police. The teens were identified as Paul Padlo, 18, a resident at the house, and Andrew Kovacik, 19, also of Arlington Heights.

Police found ammunition, bullet holes and weapons in the home and learned that the teens were firing shots at a garbage can outside the home, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Katherine Levine’s statement in Cook County bond court in Rolling Meadows Saturday.

Arlington Heights police officers determined the teens were shooting a 30-caliber M1 rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun. The direction of the shots were reported to have endangered the bodily safety of at least two neighbors.

Both teens have been charged with reckless discharge of a firearm.

Bail for Paul Padlo was set at $60,000. Padlo has a prior arrest in Arlington Heights for aggravated robbery and/or burglary that allegedly occurred on July 24, 2011. At 10% Padlo needs $6,000 to be released on bond. He is a high school senior at Prospect High School.
