22-year-old Lucas Alapeck was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the third degree. Police say Alapeck had a large capacity ammunition feeding device capable of holding 30 rounds of .223 caliber ammunition.

On March 16 a single round of ammunition struck the driver's side of a school bus as it traveled south on Colesville Road in the Town of Colesville. Police are calling the shooting accidental. No one was injured in the shooting. Alapeck is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
