SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Springfield police say two shootings this weekend, including one in which a man died, are not believed connected.

Police said 20-year-old Tavis Humphrey-Frazer of Springfield died at Baystate Medical Center almost five hours after he was shot in the head in while driving down Smith Street in the Six Corners neighborhood. Police said the shooter was with a group of people walking on the street. People in Humphrey-Frazer’s car weren’t hurt. His car crashed a short time after he was shot.

Humphrey-Frazer’s high school football coach, Bill Watson, tells The Springfield Republican the youth had dropped out of college to help care for his infant son, and wanted to finish his education.

A juvenile was also injured in what appeared to be a drive-by shooting late Saturday night in the Indian Orchard neighborhood.
