The victim said the suspect was in the area earlier in the day and threatened to shoot him, the report stated.
Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
Officers were also dispatched around 5 a.m. on Tuesday to the 1500 block of Charles Street on the report of shots fired in the area, according to a Springfield police report.
When police arrived, they found several spent shell casings in the street, and found the front metal glass screen door, metal exterior door and awindow frame had all been struck by several bullets.
A short time later, a witness arrived and told police that a dog that lives with his son had been shot and was being taken to a veterinarian hospital in Dayton, the report said.
Officers tried to contact the residents around the incident area, but no one was home.
No other suspect or witness information was available for either incident, and Springfield police continue their investigations.
