    HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) — Holyoke police are investigating the city's first homicide of the year.

    Police say a 35-year-old man was found lying in the street shot several times at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    Officers on bike patrol who heard the gunfire responded to the scene and administered first aid, but the victim was pronounced dead at the hospital several hours later. The victim's name was not immediately made public.

    Police say they are searching for two suspects, at least one of whom was seen riding a red scooter.
