Suspect arrested after shots fired on Holyoke bridge

Posted: Updated:
HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) - Holyoke police say a suspect in custody fired shots at pedestrians crossing a local bridge.

The Republican reports that the unidentified suspect is charged with possession of a firearm without a license and possession of ammunition without a firearms ID card.

Lt. Larry Cournoyer said the unidentified man was arrested after a standoff with police on the Veterans Bridge at about 9 p.m. Saturday. He says pedestrians on the bridge between Holyoke and South Hadley told police they were shot at.

Holyoke officers found the suspect on the bridge, holding a handgun at his side. Police say he refused orders to drop the gun and was disarmed by an officer who tackled him.

No one was hurt.
