The 14-year-old girl killed last night in a drive-by shooting on Wilbraham Road has been identified as Dymond McGowan, who had been reported missing hours earlier.
Also shot and injured in the incident just before midnight was a 29-year-old man. Police refused to identify him today.
Police Commissioner Edward A. Flynn identified the dead girl this afternoon, describing her as a troubled child who had been under the umbrella of the state Department of Social Services for some time.
Her foster mother had reported her as a runaway several hours before the drive-by shooting at 11:45 p.m.
Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Flagg said today police were looking for the killer or killers who drove by the house at 338 Wilbraham Road, shooting at several people who were sitting on the front porch.
The murder is the 10th in the city this year. Last year, there were 15 murders in Springfield.
Flagg said police received a 911 call last night at 11:48 p.m., with the caller saying shots had been fired at the Wilbraham Road address.
When police arrived at the scene, the girl had already been taken - by an individual - to Baystate Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead of gunshot wounds to the stomach.
The man was shot, possibly in the leg. Flagg said he is being treated at Baystate and would likely be released this afternoon.
Flagg said police have yet to confirm a witness report that a 1991 Camry with heavily tinted windows was seen driving by the area at that time.
She said police are also looking into why the young girl was sitting outside, apparently socializing, at such a late hour.
"That's a question we're trying to formulate answers to right now," she said.
