Deputies then found a second victim who had been shot in the head on East Leffel Lane near Clark State College before driving to the USA Inn and Suite nearby.
Both gunshot victims were taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center, then flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. Their conditions are unknown, but both victims were alert and talking at the hospital, Clark said.
Clark also said it was unknown whether the shootings were connected, but that the sheriff’s office suspected they might be.
East Leffel Lane at Clark State was closed as investigators collected evidence, including shell casings.
The major said that the Clark County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the investigation by the Springfield Police Division and Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Springfield Post, and thanked them for their help.
