SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Two men with serious gunshot injuries were taken to an area hospital after a ShotSpotter activation on Central Street in Springfield Friday night.
Springfield Police Department spokesman Ryan Walsh said officers were alerted of the shooting at the 400 block of Central Street around 8:45 p.m.
That location is the One Stop Plaza.
Responding officers located the two men suffering from serious injuries and rushed them to Baystate Medical Center. Shortly after the shooting, crime scene experts and additional investigators could be seen in the area.
A woman who lives near the plaza told 22News she heard several gunshots go off and was worried because a relative was in the area. She later learned that the relative was okay.
