Springfield police investigating bullet shot into home

Springfield police are investigating after a bullet was shot into a home Sunday, according to a police report.

Officers were called to a home on Corlington Drive at around 9 p.m. Sunday night and were told that a residence was shot at.

“(A woman) showed officers the bullet hole in the front door,” the report says. “The bullet traveled through the front door and into the couch that was sitting along the back wall that was on the other side of the front door.”

There is a suspect in the case that was known to the family at the residence, according to the report. The suspect has not been arrested or charged in the case.

“Officers spoke to (a witness) who stated that she heard a gunshot outside of her house and when she opened the front door she observed (the suspect) outside of the front door with a pistol in a holster on her right hip,” the report says.

The witness said she heard the suspect screaming at the door telling whoever was inside that she planned to attack her. After a brief confrontation with the witness and a person inside the home, the suspect left the scene, the police report says.

After police finished interviewing the victims and the witness, both refused charges, the affidavit says. However, Springfield police are still looking into the case, the report says.

“At this time, warrants were requested … for improper discharging a firearm into a habitation,” the report says.

It is a second-degree felony, however, according to Clark County Municipal Court records no warrant has been issued.
