Massachusetts State Police are looking into the shooting death of a man whose body was found on the ramp from West Street to Route 91 North in Springfield around 3 a.m. on Friday.
Springfield Police first responded to the scene after a device that alerts police to the sound gunshots was triggered near a McDonald’s on Main Street. When they arrived, they found Jose M. Gonzalez, a 44-year-old man from Chicopee, on the on-ramp. An ambulance took him to Baystate Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Because Route 91 is an interstate highway, Massachusetts State Police were brought into the investigation.
Later in the morning, West Springfield Police located Gonzalez’s abandoned SUV at Beauview Terrace that appeared to have crashed.
No arrests have been made and State Police have not yet named any suspects.
