SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (abc40) - A man is in critical but stable condition after being shot five times at a gas station pay phone in downtown Springfield early Friday morning, according to police, but investigators have been able to piece together little to provide a motive for the shooting.
According to Capt. Eugene Dexheimer, officers responded around 2:30 a.m. to an all-night laundromat, located at 644 Main St., where they found a 22-year-old man with five gunshot wounds. Dexheimer said the man had been shot in the side of his chest, arm, groin, leg and back, and was transported to the hospital.
Police said their investigation has determined the shooting may have taken place at a pay phone at the nearby Gulf gas station and the man made his way down to the laundromat following the attack. Springfield Police Department Capt. Robert McFarlin, the head of the city's detective bureau, said the man collapsed inside of the laundromat, and had been walking south on Main Street when he came under fire from an unknown assailant or assailants.
Dexheimer said the victim has not provided any information on the shooter, and they have been able to gain little information from people in the area at the time of the incident. McFarlin said police had not been able to speak with the victim as of 11:30 a.m.
The shooting remains under investigation with the police department's criminal investigation bureau.
