A Springfield man was shot in the hand and leg tonight in the 1800 block of Rutland Avenue in Springfield.
“It originally came in as a large fight,” Sgt. Jeff Williams of the Springfield Police Division said.
Later, the report was updated around 8:30 p.m. that someone had been shot.
The gunshot victim was taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center. His name and age were not released, but his injuries are not life-threatening, Williams said.
It’s not clear whether he was shot twice, or one bullet inflicted both wounds.
Police have identified a suspect, but he is not in custody. Formal charges are expected to be filed, the sergeant said.
