CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP)–Massachusetts General Law (part IV, Title 1, Chapter 269, Section 12E) provides regulations as to when someone can discharge a firearm within a certain distance of occupied buildings.

In September, the 22News I-Team received video from a viewer showing Springfield Police officers shooting into a dump truck, in a residential neighborhood.

They contacted 22News I-Team to find out why officers were firing their weapons so close to their homes and if it was legal.
