The incident began just after 1 p.m. when an officer on patrol observed a Dodge Van in the parking lot of the BP Fuel in the 600 block of Compass Road 21220.

Police quickly apprehended three of the van’s occupants. The fourth occupant was later apprehended behind a home in the Unit block of Box Circle. A handgun was recovered in the area.

There were no reports of injuries as a result of the shooting. What prompted the shooting remains unknown.

This incident remains under investigation by the Precinct 11/Essex Investigative Services Team.

Fire crews expect their work at a stubborn two-alarm fire at Rosedale Roofing to continue into the night.

As of 5 p.m., the fire, dispatched at 1:36 p.m., still had not been brought under control. The fire continues to burn inside the warehouse. Motorists should avoid the area if possible. Fire commanders have dispatched heavy equipment to help them remove a wall and thus avoid a potentially dangerous collapse.

One volunteer firefighter from the Middleborough VFC was transported to a local hospital as a precaution because he was feeling ill..

The first-arriving crews found heavy fire and smoke coming from the warehouse. There were no rescues. Commanders quickly called for a second alarm and moved to a defensive strategy, fighting the fire from the outside. About 30 pieces of equipment and 100 personnel are fighting this fire.

Fire Investigation detectives are on the scene and will handle the investigation. A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
