FITCHBURG, Mass. — Two teenagers were arrested Tuesday evening after a tense showdown with more than five police officers with pistols drawn in front of the Main Street post office.

Nathaniel Colon, 17, of 160 High St., Apt. 1, and Eric Rivera, 18, of 156 Mechanic St., were charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor offense. There was also an outstanding warrant out for Mr. Rivera.

Police said Officers Jeffrey Hurley and James McCall were driving down Main Street about 11 p.m. Tuesday toward a domestic complaint when Officer Hurley said he saw one of the teenagers tuck a gun into his waistband as he was riding his bicycle.
