An active investigation is continuing to unfold in Westfield.

Police were on scene at both an apartment complex located at 50 Southampton Road and the town's transfer station Friday. 

Westfield police posted to their Facebook page saying the law prohibits them from providing further information on the investigation.

Although details are limited, sources told Western Mass News the District Attorney's office along with Westfield and State police are investigating in a salt shed at the transfer station.

Residents told Western Mass News they are unnerved about the incident.

"There's a lot of kids, they run around, there'rs not a lot of trouble around here. It's a great neighborhood to live in," said Kelly Gustafason.

Capt. Michael McCabe said there is no threat or danger to anyone in the area.

A crew on scene said there are K9 units near the transfer station. 

Western Mass News will update this story with more information once it becomes available.
