    FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts are investigating two shootings, one of which was fatal, that took place in roughly the same spot within days of each other.

    A spokesman for the Worcester district attorney says 23-year-old Leon Wilson Jr. was shot and killed on Blossom Street in Fitchburg last Thursday night.

    On Monday, a 22-year-old man walked into the Fitchburg police station just after 2 a.m. and said he had been shot near the spot where Wilson was killed. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    The second victim's name was not released.

    No arrests have been announced in either shooting.

    Authorities say they are investigating "a potential connection" between the shootings.
