ISP Will Investigate Shooting Of Suspect By Springfield Cop


Illinois State Police will investigate an incident Friday in which a Springfield police officer shot an armed suspect. 

 

Springfield police had responded to a 911 hangup call from a residence on Gregory Court. When officers arrived, they confronted a man with an unidentified weapon.  One officer and the suspect struggled, and the officer suffered head and facial injuries.  He in turn fired his gun, shooting the suspect in the leg.  None of the injuries were life-threatening.

 

Police Chief Kenny Winslow says it appears the officer followed protocol.
