NYACK -

Several people were arrested Tuesday night after a massive fight on the streets of Nyack.

Police say the brawl happened after the fireworks show around 11:15 p.m. in the village on Main Street and spilled out over to Depew Avenue a few blocks away.

Witnesses say they did hear gunshots, and there were injuries, but it is unknown whether those injuries were from any gunshots or from the fight. "First, I saw a bunch of kids gathering. Out of nowhere, it just happened and I saw this kid get tackled by the cops. That was their job," says Michael Harris, of Nyack.

Police did make some arrests, but have not said how many or what started the fight.
