SPRINGFIELD – Police say a 34-year-old man is dead and an 18-year-old man is facing a murder charge following a shooting in Springfield.
Witnesses tell police that three armed men forced their way into a South End apartment at about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and shot and stabbed 34-year-old Ramon Leonardo-Cruz.
Leonardo-Cruz was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the back and a stab wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead.
A car seen speeding from the scene was found a short time later. Juan Bermudez was arrested at his home and charged with murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
Police believe the slaying was drug-related and more arrests are possible.
It was the city’s 16th homicide of the year.
