HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) - Police say the early morning shootings of two men in Holyoke appear to be connected.

Officers first responded to an area outside a cafe on South Bridge Street at about 1 a.m. Tuesday where they found a 25-year-old Chicopee man who had been shot several times. He was taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. Chief James Neiswanger (NICE’-wong-er) says the man’s injuries do not appear life threatening.

Just minutes later police responded to a van crash on Hamilton Street just a couple of blocks away. The driver, a 31-year-old Springfield man, was dead. He had been shot.

No names were released and there was no word on arrests.
