A Springfield convenience store is open again after an apparent domestic dispute resulted in heavy damage to the store Sunday night.
Sangamon County officials say a woman phoned 911 to report that a man was trying to run her off the road in his vehicle. Dispatchers instructed her to go to a well-lit public area, so she pulled into the Qik-N-EZ parking lot at 11th and Stevenson. But then police say the man pulled in behind her, and used his car to force hers into the front of the store.
The store exterior and an ice storage chest outside sustained heavy damage, but no one was hurt. The suspect, 19-year-old Jerry Fairley, is in custody on multiple charges. The store re-opened Monday morning after emergency repairs were made.
