Holyoke police arrest eight near site of school bus shooting

HOLYOKE, MA (WSHM) -

Eight city residents were arrested Thursday night, following a search of their Elm Street apartments.

Police told CBS 3 that the arrests happened in the same area where a school bus with children was struck by gunfire just last week.

A loaded .22 caliber handgun was seized, along with several ounces of marijuana, cocaine and numerous bags of heroin and packaging materials.

All eight suspects were charged with various narcotics charges reflecting the possession and distribution of illegal narcotics.

The offenses also occurred within 300 feet of the Holyoke Day Nursery on Chestnut Street.
