No arrest has been made in a Saturday night shooting that caused a 21-year-old to be transported to Miami Valley Hospital and Springfield police continue to investigate it.
A police report indicates authorities were called to the 1700 block of Rutland Avenue about 8:30 p.m. because gunshots were heard. They said they learned when they arrived at the scene that someone had been shot and was taken to the Springfield Regional Medical Center by his father.
The gunshot wound was serious, police said, and the victim, Joe Gohl, was later transported to Miami Valley Regional Hospital.
“(The father) stated he saw (the suspect) holding a small black handgun that had a chrome ejection port,” the police report says. “(The father) watched the (suspect) shoot the firearm four times while standing in the street at Gohl, striking him in the right hand and his upper right thigh causing serious injury.”
The report says when questioned by police, Gohl refused to cooperate. He was listed in fair condition Monday morning, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
A warrant has been requested for the suspect, according to the police report, but as of Tuesday morning, no one had been arrested.
