At approximately 8:15 a.m. yesterday, Marshfield Police received multiple 911 calls reporting an altercation in the area of a school bus stop on Plain Street. Two of the callers stated that one of the men pulled a gun on the other during the altercation.

With the incident occurring at a school bus stop and the schools being in close vicinity to the altercation, the police advised that all schools to go into a “Shelter in Place” status. This is a scenario allows for the teaching of classes to proceed while ensuring no one can enter or leave the building while in effect.

The other party involved was transported to a local hospital for care of a human bite sustained under the armpit, and injuries to his head from being struck by a set of keys by the defendant during what became a physical altercation.

Marshfield Police enlisted the assistance of the Massachusetts State Police, Plymouth County Sheriffs Department and our METRO-LEC team to assist us in searching for the gun allegedly shown during the altercation. Dogs specifically trained to detect firearms were utilized and grid searches of the area and complex were done.

Anderson is next scheduled to appear in court on June 11, 2024.
