Shots were fired outside of a fraternity annex house at 1:50 a.m. April 2. There were no injuries reported while two individuals were arrested.

A student who asked not to have his full name disclosed, but is known as “B-watts” by friends in his fraternity, had talked to the shooter previously that night.

“We told them that the party was full and that we would be unable to let them in, and they actually seemed really chill about it and left,” “B-watts” said.

A few moments later he noticed a gray minivan driving up to the party.

“I didn’t think anything of it at first,” he said. “Then when they got out of the minivan, I noticed a weird green light on the right side of my shirt. When I looked up, I noticed that the dude was pointing a handgun at me.”

The man, who would later be identified by police as DaQuan J. Bryant, reportedly held the gun in the air and fired three shots before running back into the car and driving off.

“Everyone at the party screamed and dropped to the floor, but I didn’t because I didn’t believe that had just happened,” B-watts said. “I thought they were blanks. Then when the police showed up a few minutes later, they found the bullet shells in the street.”

The police found two men soon after at the 7/11 on Main Street and First Street and took them into custody.

    Breaking news eight days later? I appreciate the news but very poor headline, “frat party” just sounds weak. Also Orion please stop bashing the greek system, there was no proof of it being a fraternity annex, and thats more slang than anything.

    I recall crashing a frat party and getting attacked by drunken frat members, this wasn’t recently but quite a few years back. I find the Frat guys story not believable, these frat guys can really be rough when non-frat men crash their parties and try and move in on their shapely sorority women. I will admit though this is the first time I’ve heard a gun come out in Chico over something like this. With bullets flying now in the South campus neighborhood on Fridays nights I believe I am going to skip my nightly walk.
