Two Palm Cost men were arrested Monday evening and two firearms were confiscated following a fight at the Indian Trails Sports Complex.

Robert Norwood, 18, of 28 Lansing Lane in Palm Coast, and David Harris, 21, of 130 London Drive, were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence. Harris was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies responded to the complex on Belle Terre Parkway at 8:50 p.m. after receiving a report of a fight. Several individuals were located around a vehicle which deputies had blocked when they responded to the scene.

Witnesses told deputies that during the argument, Harris brandished a handgun toward the 17-year-old victim and then put it into his nearby vehicle. As the argument continued, Norwood retrieved the same gun and pointed it at the victim. Both Norwood and Harris attempted to leave the area as deputies arrived, but their vehicle was blocked.

Inside Harris’ vehicle, deputies found a 12 gauge shotgun, 12 rounds of ammunition and a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic handgun.

“This was not an isolated incident. The victim received a call saying these two men were on their way to the park to fight. Norwood and Harris were looking for trouble Monday night and we were able to interrupt what could have been a deadly situation,” said Sheriff Donald W. Fleming.

Norwood and Harris were being held in the Flagler County Inmate Facility Wednesday afternoon. Norwood’s bond is set at $5,000 and Harris has a $4,000 bond.

    These events are occuring rather often these days. I think the rentals are now drawing rats.
    Does anyone know if the 10-20-Life sentence still applies for gunplay ?

    ‘punk” is my 4 letter word, to describe these individuals. But, YES, unfortunately this is happening too much in Palm Coast. But do you ever hear this reported by the FCSO or City, to keep us aware, and more vigilant? Pretty soon, we’ll have to put cameras up every where…

    I’ve been saying for years this was the future of Palm Coast. Overbuilt with shoddy houses that would rapidly fall apart. My prediction said that it would be a slum in twenty years. I never thought that would be too optimistic. My favorite nicknames for it is looking good too, New Jersey with Rattlesnakes.

    I disagree in saying it is the “rental rats”. I am a homeowner, yet rent currently…in a duplex. I am an upstanding citizen of this county and feel it is unfair to discrimate against renters. Certain people are not able to afford owning a home at this time. Please don’t get it confused. There is trouble around every corner, homeowner or renter.

    These two young men used poor judgement when they violated Florida State guns laws. Brandishing and menacing someone with a gun is a very serious crime in Florida. A charge off assault, involving a gun, and concealing a gun (without a Concealed Carry permit) are other serious gun crimes. It doesn’t matter if they rent or own, live in our City or not, were only “acting up” or trying to hurt someone! They will receive their day in court! If proven guilty as charged, they will receive the appropriate sentence in prison. I’m not interested in any “social implications” on why these young men acted the way they did. I just want to see them severely punished, if proven guilty, before these men have a future chance at actually harming or killing someone in our community!

    I’ll be so happy when everyone is obedient, well behaved and on Prozac. .A nice oatmeal society, just like Happy Days, when the biggest menace was the Fonz

    I wonder if it’s a gang problem. Oh wait, this is Flagler County. We don’t have those here.

    those are some fine looking citizens. love the picture. looks like the chubby one is half asleep and what is that crap on the other dirtbag’s head?

    I seriously doubt they will spend much time in jail. The judge in this county is weak. I follow the police reports and notice the same people being arrested again and again, some of them have several felony charges. I look them up on FCSO inmate search and they’re released. It really scares me that someone can be arrested on gun charges, usually unregistered or stolen weapons, and then be released back on the streets.

    Incident that is beyond my understanding. 4 students leave school in a car 1, followed by 3 students and a convicted felon in car 2. Driver of car 1 is pulled out of his car while 3 others, from car 2, hold the doors shut so his friends can’t help him. Driver of car 1 is beaten, police arrive, felon’s car searched, gun found. Driver 1 taken to hospital with concusion. Felon and 3 students, from car 2, free to go. No charges pressed. What the heck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
