Holyoke Police responded to a call at 47 Vernon Street where they found 29-year-old Luis Rivera trying to enter an apartment. Rivera was acting erratically and refused to respond to officers after they tried to calm him down.

He was tasered and while police struggled to confine him, a fully loaded semi-automatic 5.7 caliber handgun fell from his clothing. He was then subdued and taken into custody.
