Investigators say the shooting took place in the Washington Avenue Extension area in Hyannis.

In a joint press statement, Cape and Island District Attorney Michael O’Keefe and Barnstable police chief Paul MacDonald announced Friday afternoon that Kyle Jeffrey Walker, 24, of South Yarmouth, and Keven Seme, 19, of Brockton, were arrested on Friday.

The suspects were arrested in the parking lot of the Cuddles and Bubbles Hotel on Main Street, Hyannis, after getting into a car driven by two 17-year-old girls, authorities say.

Authorities say three other people are under arrest for trafficking heroin who were in the hotel room from which the two charged in the shooting emerged. A quantity of heroin has been seized, authorities added.

Barnstable police and state police detectives are investigating.
