Springfield police were dispatched to three separate shots fired incidents earlier this week.
The first incident occurred at around 9 p.m. on Monday after officers were dispatched to the area of Oakwood Place and South Lowry Street on a report of shots fired, a Springfield police report said.
When police arrived, they “found several vehicles with bullet holes and busted windows from this incident,” the report said.
Officers spoke with one victim at the scene who said she had her two rear passenger windows shot out on her 2000 Chevy Impala.
“(The victim) said she heard 10 shots fired around her house,” the report said.
Officers were dispatched to the second report of shots fired around 9:25 p.m. Monday after a homeowner called Springfield dispatch to say a shot was fired through the window of his home in the 200 block of Fair Street, a second police report said.
The victim told police he was not home at the time, but his children were and told him about the incident.
“(The victim) stated that a round went through the front window of his residence,” the second report said. “The round did not strike any of the residents.”
Officers were dispatched a third time around 9:45 p.m. to the same area in reference to the shots fired, a third police report said.
When police arrived, they found several spent bullet casings in the road, along with two bullet strikes to a silver Jeep parked in front of the house, the third report said.
Officers contacted the owner of the Jeep who said when she parked the car around 8:30 p.m. that night, there were no holes in it.
“She stated that she heard the shots about 20 minutes before officers arrived in the area,” the third report said.
Officers also found several bullet casings on Oakwood Place and Fair Street.
According to all three of the reports, no suspect information was available and Springfield police continue their investigations into these incidents.
