Two people were arrested on Friday for allegedly starting a violent fight in Kensington while leaving a 6-year-old child in the backseat of a car.

Melissa Feliciano, 23, and Emanuel Cosme, 22, are charged with riot, conspiracy, child welfare endangerment, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and weapons offenses.

Prosecutors said the couple on April 24 started a fight on the 3000 block of Boudinot Street "that quickly grew in size and ultimately ended in gunfire."

They're accused of leaving Feliciano's 6-year-old son in the backseat of a car "in close proximity to a firearm."

Both suspects were arraigned Friday night.

They were jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail and are next due in court for a preliminary hearing on May 9.
