SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Springfield police say what started as a street fight involving as many as 20 people turned deadly when someone pulled a gun and opened fire.
Officers responded to reports of multiple shots fired in the city's Indian Orchard neighborhood just after 5 p.m. Sunday.
When they arrived they found a man down in the street with a gunshot wound to the chest.
The victim, identified as 38-year-old John White, who lived in the neighborhood, was taken to Baystate Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police say White left his home to see what was going on and it wasn't immediately clear if he was involved in the disturbance.
There have been no arrests.
White's shooting was the city's 10th homicide of the year.
