SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - Authorities are investigating a fatal stabbing that occurred on Boston Road Saturday night.

Springfield Police spokesperson Ryan Walsh tells us that, around 7:00 p.m., police were called to a report of a disturbance on the 900-1100 blocks of Boston Road.

When officers arrived on scene, they located an adult male, who has not yet been identified yet, that had been stabbed.

He was pronounced dead on-scene, Walsh added.

Lt. Kane of the Springfield Police Department was able to tell us that that area of Boston Road is blocked off as police continue to investigate.

Witnesses we spoke with say they're shocked, because you usually don't see things like this in this neighborhood.

It is unclear when that section of Boston Road is expected to reopen or if a suspect has been taken into custody.

This incident remains under investigation by Springfield Police officers assigned to the department's homicide unit and the Hampden County District Attorney's office.

This story is developing and we will provide you with the latest update as soon as more information becomes available.
