Second victim dead in Kick Back Lounge shooting, victims identified

The first victim died shortly after the shooting on Sunday

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The second victim in the June 4th shooting at the Kick Back Lounge in Springfield has died.

According to a news release sent to 22News from the Hampden District Attorney’s office, Chauncy Marshall, 31, of Springfield, died Thursday from the injuries he suffered during the shooting.

Marshall’s death follows the death of Warren Payne, Jr., 27, also from Springfield, who died right after the Sunday morning shooting.

Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni stated in a news release, “My thoughts and sympathy are with Mr. Marshall’s and Mr. Payne’s families and friends at this time, along with the others affected by this violent incident.”

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. Though it’s unclear if the shooting was gang related, Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno issued a statement Thursday saying he wants a full frontal attack on Street Gangs. Sarno said that although crime is down 19% in the city of Springfield, street gang violence continues to be an issue. Sarno expressed concern with repeat offenders of crimes in the city, and said he will keep pushing bail legislation with state representatives and District Attorney Anthony Gulluni to keep violent repeat offenders off the street.

If you have any information about the shooting, you are asked to call Springfield police at (413) 787-6310.
