Two teenage gang members will face endangerment charges in juvenile court for their actions Tuesday night in Wausau.

Wausau Police Chief Bill Brandimore says some gang members drove by a rival's house Tuesday night. On their next lap around the block, gang members came out of the house with rifles and chased the car down the street.

Neighbors called 9-1-1 and police responded with force. Eight Southeast Asian males ranging in age from 13 to 16 were arrested. Two remain in custody.

No shots were fired and the suspects claim the rifles were unloaded. Chief Brandimore says they might have gotten to these kids early enough, because they weren't ready to load the guns and pull the trigger.
