Man is Shot in Leg, Refuses to Cooperate with Springfield Police

SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — A man is shot in the leg in Springfield, then refuses to cooperate with police.

The shooting took place around 1 o’clock this morning. The victim actually walked into Baystate Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his leg.

The man claims he was shot on Carew Street, but officers are skeptical. They say the sounds of gunshots were reported near Massasoit Street right before the man showed up to the hospital.

He is expected to be released later this morning. Police are still investigating.
