June 21, 2019 -Chicopee- On Sunday, June 9, 2019 members of the Chicopee Police Department responded to 2 Springfield Street for a report of shots fired.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a victim of the shooting, Mr. Charles White, 27, of Springfield, who appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was deceased.

Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the Hampden District Attorney’s Office along with the Hampden District Attorney’s Office’ Murder Unit and the Chicopee Police Department immediately opened a homicide investigation.

The victim appears to have been a passenger in the car which arrived in a nearby parking lot moments before four suspects approached the car. The driver of the vehicle fled from the suspects leaving Mr. White to be confronted by these individuals.  

Investigators quickly determined the identity of two of the suspects; Daniel Caldwell, 27, of Agawam and Kaevon Brimfield, 26, of Springfield.

Daniel Caldwell was arrested on June 12, 2019 by members of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section in Agawam.

Namel Clark was taken into custody, without incident, on June 13, 2019 from a home on Standish Street in Springfield. He was arraigned the same day in Springfield District Court on a charge of murder. He is currently being held without the right to bail; his next court date is on July 10, 2019.

Investigators learned Gilfrey Gregory had rented a car and was most likely headed to Arizona.
