Police Investigate Morning Shooting on Boston Road

fileSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police in Springfield are searching for two men after a shooting this morning in front of the Madrag Clothing Store on Boston Road.

Two men in their late teens or early twenties were arguing outside the store when one pistol whipped the other.

The man was able to pull away and the gunman shot at him. It’s unclear if the target was hit by that gunshot.

Police launched an air search and deployed K-9 units to find the suspects. It is believed the suspects have left the area. No arrests have been made at this time.

An 11 year-old female, who was waiting outside the store to purchase Air Jordan sneakers was caught in the cross fire, but her injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

The Springfield Police are still investigating.
