Shot Last September, Springfield Man Shot Again Early Sunday
A Springfield man was shot several times early Sunday morning according to Springfield police. This is the second time this same individual has been shot in less than a year in Springfield.
Police say the shooting occurred around 2:52am Sunday morning. After the shooting, the victim, Josh McKissick, 33, of Springfield, was driven to NorthCrest Medical Center by a citizen.
According to police, the wounds are life threatening and at least one round penetrated McKissick’s torso. The citizen who drove McKissick to the hospital indicated that he just found him lying on the ground on 15Th Street at Leota Street some time after the shooting and drove Mckissick to NorthCrest.
According to police, Mckissick is refusing to talk to officers. “He had been shot four times and the wounds were life threatening,” police said.
Officers were sent to 15th and Leota where they found McKissick’s Saturn in the street with the driver’s door ajar but there were no bullet holes in the Saturn.
This is the second time Josh McKissick has been shot in Springfield in the last year. In what sounds like a mirror image of today’s incident, last September McKissick arrived at NorthCrest Medical Center with as many as ten bullets in him, and like today, he was driven to the hospital by private vehicle, according to Springfield Police Chief David Thompson.
According to Thompson, McKissick was conscious and talking when he arrived at NorthCrest last September but, again, decided not to talk to police about what happened. At the time, Police didn’t know the location of the shooting or even what time McKissick was shot for sure.
At the present time, Police are seeking information from the public to determine what happened at the scene this morning that resulted in this shooting at 15th and Leota, including any suspect information.
Anyone having additional information on the crime is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 615 382-3799 where they may receive a cash reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects in this crime.
