Police Make Quick Arrest In City's 7th Murder

The victim in Tuesday's fatal shooting in Springfield's Liberty Heights neighborhood is being identified.

The Hampden District Attorney's office says officers arrived at the vicinity of Liberty and Genessee streets for a shots-fired report and found 19-year-old Isaiah Ramos of Springfield.

Ramos later died at Baystate Medical Center. The D.A.'s office says Edwin Hernandez, of Holyoke, was arraigned in Springfield District Court on a murder charge in connection to the fatal shooting yesterday.

Police say the shooting was not a random act.

Despite that admission neither police or prosecutors are talking about motive.
