HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) — Police have arrested a Chicopee man involved in a shooting near Holyoke’s St. Patrick’s Road Race.

The Boston Globe reports 19-year-old Devin Roman is charged with attempted murder and multiple firearms violations.

Police say the shooting happened around 4:30 p.m. Saturday about a half mile from the race’s starting point. Thousands of people were downtown for the race.

A police officer saw Roman and the victim arguing moments before the shooting. Police say Roman and the victim knew each other and that the shooting wasn’t related to the race.

The victim was taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield with non-life threatening injuries. Police haven’t released the victim’s identity.

Online records don’t list a phone number for Roman. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney to comment.
