SOUTH HADLEY – The man who died as a result of Friday’s early morning shooting at Anthony’s Gentlemen’s Club in South Hadley has been identified as 25-year-old Holyoke resident Jean Carlos Bones-Colon.
The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office has not released the identity of the second victim.
Officials say Friday’s fatal shooting at the club was not a random act of violence and are asking for leads from the public.
South Hadley Police were called to 500 New Ludlow Road just before 2 a.m. Friday morning where two men had been shot outside of the gentlemen’s club.
According to the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, both men were brought to Holyoke Medical Center where Bones-Colon was pronounced dead and the other victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
First Assistant District Attorney Steven E. Gagne said there appears to be no threat to the public’s safety.
“Although the investigation into this incident continues, it appears this was not a random act of violence, and there is no cause for public alarm,” said Gagne.
Anyone with information related to the incident is urged to contact the South Hadley Police Department at (413) 538-8231 x306, or the Massachusetts State Police at (413) 587-5517.
Members of the public may also leave anonymous tips by calling the South Hadley Police Department at (413) 538-8231 or by texting the Text-a-Tip program by texting PROTECT and a message to 274637.
The incident is being jointly investigated by the South Hadley Police Department and Massachusetts State Police detectives unit assigned to the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office.
