Springfield Police investigate bullet holes found in home

Springfield police are continuing to investigate a shooting reported Monday on Prairie Avenue.

Officers began their investigation Monday morning when they were called to the 100 block of Prairie.

“(Officers) located shell casings in front of a (home),” a police report says. “Upon further investigation, several apparent bullet holes were located on the front side of the residence.”

Officers spoke with a witness who told them he heard shots at around 2 a.m.

“While hearing these, (he) looked out his front window in time to see one flash from what he believed to be a handgun,” the report says. The witness told police he saw a silver sedan quickly leave the area and head northbound on Clifton Avenue, according to the report.

Officers were able to collect a number of shell casings for evidence, the report says. However, no charges will be filed at this time, the report says, because there is no suspect information available.
