SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A self-proclaimed gang member who refused to cooperate with police was shot multiple times while on the sidewalk in front of 100 Central St., police said.

Police responded to a "shot spotter" activation just before midnight Thursday and the first officers on scene found a male victim lying on the edge of the sidewalk. A driver who saw the injured victim stopped and was already providing first aid when police arrived, according to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.

The 23-year-old victim had multiple gunshot wounds to his buttocks, hip and left side. Police called for EMT's and continued to provide first aid.

The victim was alert and conscious the entire time first responders assisted him, but he refused to say anything to police other than his name and date of birth, Delaney said. The victim would not discuss who pulled the trigger.

Police processed the crime scene and are following up on leads. While there have not been any arrests made in connection with the shooting, the investigation is ongoing.

The victim was in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. He has an extensive record with the Springfield Police Department, Delaney said.
