Man arrested in connection with 2018 Springfield shooting


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield police have arrested a man Monday morning in connection with a shooting on June 10, 2018.

Springfield Police Spokesman Ryan Walsh told 22News, 27-year-old Wesley Haynes was arrested at 6:45 a.m. at his home on Cambridge Street after a detective positively identified him as the shooter when viewing a video of the incident that occurred last year.

Walsh said the victim has been uncooperative with officers throughout the entire process.
