SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Springfield police were active overnight with officers responding to three shootings within two hours of each other in three separate areas of the city.

Lt. Richard Labelle tells WWLP-TV (https://bit.ly/2ahf7iR ) that the first call came in around midnight for a person who was shot in the right shoulder and robbed of their cellphone in the Brightwood neighborhood.

The victim was taken to Baystate Medical Center and is expected to survive.

About a half-hour later, a pizza delivery driver was shot in the back on Johnson Street. The worker drove himself to Baystate and is also expected to recover.

An hour after the second shooting, a man was shot three times in the city’s lower Forest Park section.

Police are still actively searching for the suspects.
