Two men were shot after an altercation over a vehicle mishap at 19th and Kansas early this morning.
Assistant Springfield Police Chief Cliff Buscher says police were called at around 4am after a parked car was either sideswiped or backed into by a car with two occupants. 35-year-old Oscar Brown and 22-year-old Richard Lawuery got out of the car and exchanged words with the two in the parked car. Police allege that Brown drew a gun and shot the two in the parked car. One man died and the other was hospitalized in stable condition.
Police arrested Brown and charged him with first degree homicide and unlawful use of a weapon. Richard Lawuery was arrested and charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and obstruction of justice.
