SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — A grand jury has indicted three suspects accused in the 2021 murder of a Springfield man.

Jim Leydon, spokesperson for the Hampden District Attorney’s Office, said that 20-year-old Brialee Garcia of Springfield, 23-year-old Joel Rodriguez of Springfield, and 28-year-old Christopher Hernandez of Chicopee have been indicted on a first degree murder charge.

Springfield Police were called to a ShotSpotter activation near Leete Street in the late evening hours of May 1, 2021.  When officers arrived, they found 22-year-old Kamari Lyles of Springfield suffering from what appeared to be gunshot wounds inside a parked car.  He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

A second person who was hit by gunfire was provided aid at the scene, was taken to Baystate Medical Center, and survived.

Leydon explained that when investigators went to arrest the three suspects, they found 10 guns, 27 high-capacity magazines, including a 50 round drum magazine and several 30 round magazines, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The suspects are being held without the right to bail and will be arraigned and are waiting to be arraigned in Hampden Superior Court.
