2 Arrested After Shooting At Worcester YMCA

Two people are under arrest after multiple gunshots were fired outside a Worcester YMCA.

No one was hurt but two vehicles had windows shot out at about 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

Police say an off-duty state trooper was walking to the YMCA when he heard a gunshot. The trooper saw a man standing at the top of the steps of the Y with a gun. The man fired three shots before driving away.

The trooper followed the suspect's car until police were able to arrest him and another man. Police also recovered a gun.

Police say 22-year-old Jesus Benitez and 19-year-old Luis Rosario are scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

A church-sponsored group feeding the homeless was at the Y at the time of the shooting, but police did not disclose a motive.
