Hampden County

Springfield has been the center of violent activity over the last few days.

A man was shot at the corner of Federal and Worthington Streets in Springfield Monday night. Springfield Police Department spokesman Ryan Walsh told 22News he died at the hospital overnight.

Springfield Police are also investigating another shooting on Cherry Street that happened Monday night, in which a woman’s car was shot at.

Over the weekend, police were called to two other shootings, and a body was discovered in a park.

Just before 8 p.m. Sunday night, Walsh told 22News a man was shot in the leg inside a home on Dawes Street. Just about an hour later around 9 p.m., Walsh said two people had been shot outside a home on Knox Street.

The victims of these shootings were taken to the hospital, and are expected to be okay.

Springfield police discovered a body at Emerson Wight Park Saturday morning.
