Five people were arrested after a fight in a Prospect Avenue apartment spilled into the street Thursday evening.

Charlottesville police spokesman Lt. Ronnie Roberts said a physical fight between four men -- Christopher Jermaine Hall, 23, of Charlottesville; his brother, Marcus Wayne Hall, 27, of Charlottesville; Jamar Douglas Cutchin, 28, of Charlottesville; and Charles Lenny France, 26, of Newport News -- began inside an apartment in the 700 block of Prospect Avenue around 9 p.m.

Roberts said he believed the fight had to do with an assault that happened several months ago and involved France.

The fight moved from inside the apartment out into the street in front of the apartment buildings.

A woman with the group, Treneice Sierra Hill, 25, of Newport News, fired a gun into the air twice, Roberts said. He said Hill was not firing at anyone and no one was hit.

City police officers doing a foot patrol in the area responded to the fight almost immediately, Roberts said.

One of the men was taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center for a shoulder injury after the fight, but otherwise, Roberts said, no one was hurt. He said all five were taken to jail.

Both Halls were charged with assault and battery, as was Cutchin. France was charged with disorderly conduct and Hill was charged with reckless handling of a firearm.

Online court records show that both Halls and Hill appeared in Charlottesville General District Court on Friday. No online information about Cutchin and France’s charges was available early Friday afternoon.

The Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail said both Halls and Hill were still being held as of early Friday afternoon and said Cutchin and France were not.
