‘Innocent bystander’ dies after getting struck by stray bullet


An “innocent bystander” died after being struck by a stray bullet during a shooting at the Holyoke Mall over the weekend, according to police who arrested a suspect and assigned extra officers to the mall on Sunday.

“The victim was an innocent bystander to a confrontation between two other people,” the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Holyoke Police officers responded to the shooting at the Holyoke Mall at Ingleside on Saturday at around 6:59 p.m. Upon arrival, police found a male victim at the scene, and a suspect was immediately taken into custody. Police did not immediately name the victim and suspect.

Holyoke Police after the shooting reiterated that it was an isolated incident, and that there was no ongoing public safety threat.

Police assigned extra officers inside and outside the mall on Sunday. Police said they hope to be able to sustain that extra presence going forward.
