Two men are charged after they allegedly shot off more than 80 rounds of ammunition to ring in the new year in Elgin.

Marcus James of Joliet and Charles Steward of Hanover Park are expected in court Monday.

Police responding to a home early Sunday say the men were shooting handguns and a shotgun into the air.

Police say the men barricaded themselves in the home, but later surrendered.
