Springfield Police have confirmed that there was a fatal shooting at a market located on Central Ave in Springfield. The market is located next to Larry’s restaurant directly across from the Springfield fire station. (Location of market) A call came into 911 that shots were fired at the market around 8:40PM Saturday evening.
We believe that when police arrived at the market on Central Ave everyone had already fled the scene. About ten minutes later (around 8:50pm) another call came into 911 about a possible shooting victim a few blocks away on Childress Street. When police arrived at that location they discovered a male in his 20′s in a white Jeep Cherokee parked on the side of the road. According to police, the victim was deceased and they quickly tied the two locations together. From what we were able to understand at the scene, the victim was in the back seat of the vehicle and the shots appeared to have come through the back window.
