Twenty-six-year-old Bethgy Cator, of Avon, was transported to Good Samaritan Medical Center and was later pronounced dead.

Another man was rushed to Boston Medical Center with unspecified injuries. He is not being identified by authorities at this time.

“It’s a tough neighborhood. So it’s not a big surprise,” one resident said.

Another man walking by the scene on Spring and Pleasant Street Sunday morning said his barber shop is around the corner. When he went there, his barber was talking about the shooting. “He said it’s very bad for this area, he thinks do you need to have more officers out here throughout the night?”

The District Attorney’s office is investigating the shooting. No arrests have been made.
