(KMOV.com) – Police have arrested two men in connection with a shooting Wednesday in St. Louis County.

According to police, just after 7 p.m. on July 3, 24-year-old Michael Eiland fired shots from a vehicle into a home in the 5200 block of Hamilton Avenue.

After investigating the shooting, police tracked a lead to a home in Country Club Hills.

When officers arrived, police say 20-year-old Darrion Dardon produced a gun and struggled with police.

Dardon and Eiland reportedly barricaded themselves in the home until the tactical operations unit arrived.

Once TOU arrived, the suspects surrendered without incident. Eiland is held on $200,000 bond for his alleged role in the shooting, while Dardon’s bond is set at $500,000 accompanying charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer.
