Justin Martin, who appeared with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens in Disney's wildly successful High School Musical 3, was allegedly involved in a shootout with law enforcement in Boston.

According to the Boston PD via TMZ, patrolling officers overheard shots fired and quickly made their way to the scene. There, they found the 21-year-old Martin and one other individual. Martin and the other man were both armed, and they fled when the cops showed up.

As the police pursued, Martin allegedly pointed his gun at them but didn't unload any bullets. The second suspect, however, allegedly did shoot at the cops.

According to Us Weekly, officers also exchanged fire with the suspects but missed all shots. When they finally caught up with the two men, the police arrested both of them and confiscated a loaded .22-caliber handgun from Martin and a loaded .25-caliber handgun from his accomplice.

In High School Musical 3, Martin played Donny Dion, one of the new Wildcats stirring up trouble for the old favorites from East High. Check out the video below for a quick reminder of his character.

Martin faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm as well as two counts of assault by means of a dangerous weapon. Martin has since pled guilty to all counts, and his bail is set at $35,000.
