HOLYOKE (AP) -- Two people have been shot in Holyoke, one fatally, and police are trying to determine whether the shootings were connected.

Officers first responded to an area outside a cafe on South Bridge Street at about 1 a.m. Tuesday where they found a victim who had been shot several times. He was taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.

Just minutes later police responded to a van crash on Hamilton Street just a couple of blocks away. The dead driver had been shot.

No names were released and it was not immediately clear if the shootings were connected.

There was no word on arrests.
