Posted: Updated:

Three people have been arrested after a drive-by shooting on Main Street in Manchester Tuesday afternoon.

Witnesses told police that a group of men in a tan Ford Escort fired an unknown amount of bullets at a home in the area of 243 Oak St. just after 2:30 p.m.

The Ford Escort was located at an apartment on Main Street near the intersection of Haynes Street a short time later, police said. Officers blocked off the area and setup a perimeter.

"We saw three men pull in their car, really fast," said eyewitness Caitlin Hebert.

Police were able to locate the suspects in a house in the area and arrested them. The names and charges that they are facing are not being released at this time.

No one was injured during the shooting, police said. 

A witness tells Eyewitness News that there were many children in the house when suspects ran inside. Police escorted at least eight people out of the building.

Illing Middle School and Elisabeth Bennet Academy were locked down for 30 minutes during the incident, police said. 

Police are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting. The shooting is under investigation.
