SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The Springfield Police Department is investigating an incident involving 2 men with gunshot wounds who went to an area doughnut shop to get help.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to the Dunkin Donuts at the ‘X’ for a report of two men that had entered the store with gunshot wounds.

Officers arrived and found two 19-year-old men suffering from non-life threatening injuries.

One man was shot in the upper arm. The other was shot in the left thigh, and that round then went through his groin area and became lodged in his right thigh.

According to Delaney, the victims reported that they were sitting in their Toyota Camry near the corner of Commonwealth and Hollywood Streets when two people approached the car wearing hooded sweatshirts and masks.

The victims told officers they were shot, then drove to Dunkin Donuts for help.

The pair, Delaney says, later allegedly admitted that it was a failed drug deal or robbery attempt.

No arrests have been made.
