Springfield man arrested in double shooting in Connecticut


MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — A 21-year-old Springfield man has been arrested on two murder charges for a shooting at a Connecticut commuter parking lot in August, police said.

The Hartford Courant reports that Gregory Chrichlow, of Springfield, was arrested late Saturday in the Aug. 2 shooting at the lot near the Buckland Hills mall in Manchester.

Police said a feud between gang members in Springfield led to the deadly shootings of 24-year-old Gregory Scott of Springfield and 20-year-old Jennifer Hicks of Chicopee.

At the time of the killing, dozens of cars had congregated in the lot after a race from Springfield to Manchester, police said. The two victims were sitting in a Jeep Wrangler when they were shot, authorities said.

It wasn’t clear if Chrichlow had an attorney who could speak for him.
