Springfield Police Division officers were called to an apartment in the 500 block of W. High St. on a report of a person who had been injured in a shooting. An officer discovered the victim lying in the doorway of an apartment, but was very uncooperative and wouldn’t provide any information about the information. He would only tell police three people entered the apartment all with firearms, according to a police report.

A witness told police the victim arrived earlier in the evening. Later, a man knocked on the door and said “Open the (expletive) door.” Three men wearing black hooded sweatshirts and face masks holding guns pushed through the door, including one person with what looked like a machine gun with an extended clip, the report said. The witness then heard a single gun shot and the males left the apartment, but he was unsure which they fled.

The victim was also very uncooperative with medics and provided very little information before being transported to the hospital. The victim’s injury and condition are unknown.

No charges have been filed due to a lack of suspect information, the report said.
