Springfield police investigate gang-related shooting

Posted: Updated:

Gunshots were fired late Monday night in Indian Orchard after a gang-related fight broke out at 256 Centre Street.

Police were in the area of Main Street when they heard the gunshots. They responded to Centre Street within seconds to find several people fleeing the scene, according to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.

The officers stopped two subjects who were affiliated with local gangs, but did not find any weapons.

After speaking with witnesses, police determined a large fight broke out inside 256 Centre St. and shots were fired as people began to flee in their cars, specifically a dark colored SUV and a dark colored sedan, Delaney said.

Detectives are checking video surveillance from the area and the case remains under investigation.

The subjects that were detained by police were uncooperative and were released.
