ESSEX — Firefighters and police responded to Main Street at 3 p.m. Wednesday after a school bus driver reported the vehicle was leaking fuel.
The bus driver let the students off on the sidewalk in front of The White Elephant shop until police and firefighters arrived. A school district mechanic found that the fuel was leaking because the tank cap was missing. The mechanic improvised a cap , the children reboarded the bus, which continued its route.
Police responded to a report of gunshots fired around County Road on Wednesday at 11:18 p.m.
Police searched the area, found no one, and heard no gunshots.
Officers had a car towed for revoked registration after finding it in the lot behind the police station Thursday at 12:30 a.m.
