CHICOPEE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) – During the Chicopee Comp-Chicopee High football game, a fight between two men in the stands resulted in a gun reportedly being pulled.

There were frightening moments for fans in the stands during a local football game on Thursday. Chicopee Police Officer Travis Odiorne told Western Mass News that one man is in custody after an argument between two men turned violent when police said one man was reportedly hit with a gun during a fight.

“There was a physical altercation between two male parties at the game. During the altercation, one of the male parties allegedly pulled a firearm from his waistband and struck the other person in the face with it,” Odiorne explained.

Western Mass News spoke with an eyewitness of the fight who wished to remain anonymous. She described the officers rushing to the scene to make an arrest.

“As we were leaving, we saw a bunch of cops going toward this group of people and we didn’t know what was happening, then my friend turned back and said ‘Oh, there was a fight’…All of a sudden, we saw a girl crying on the phone and yelling ‘Oh, he was hit in the gun in the head,’” the eyewitness explained.

This incident came after two teens were charged with assaulting a 12-year-old at a Chicopee Comp. football game in October. We asked Odiorne if these two events could lead to more security at football games, but he said that is ultimately the school’s decision.

“They typically hire two officers per game. That’s just generally how it goes. We can’t dictate to them how many officers need to be hired per game. That is a decision that the school department makes,” Odiorne noted.

Chicopee Police said no shots were fired during the fight. Odiorne added that police still have yet to find out the reason the two men were arguing and the incident is under investigation.
