A 20-year-old Amherst man was transported to Baystate Medical Center by the Amherst Fire Department Tuesday afternoon after suffering a single gunshot wound to the right leg, according to a press release from the Amherst Police Department.

APD responded to 826 North Pleasant St. on Tuesday, July 24 at 2:47 p.m. After a short investigation, Amherst Police Detectives arrested Kalop P. Shetrawski, 24, of Leverett. Shetrawski is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to the press release distributed by Police Lt. William Menard, Shetrawski is expected to be arraigned July 25 at Eastern Hampshire District Court. He is being held at Hampshire County House of Correction on a $25,000 cash bail.

This is being considered an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public, according to APD.

    I would write that this is an indication of the great and safe community we live in, along with
    the recent bus stabbing.

    But I assume my comments like others will be censored.

    The man who enraged in the shooting was an immigrant, Kalop Shetrawski and the recent bus stabbing on the pvta bus line was done by a Muslim immigrant.

    It’s pretty obvious that it’s unusual for major crimes to occur in a small town and typically the people who commit these crimes are not from the area .

    And yet the Collegian like a typical liberal newspaper, when a criminal is a minority or migrant, deliberately leaves their name out to avoid the association of violent crime committed by minorities or immigrants.
