Springfield police are investigating whether a drive-by shooting on Stevenson Drive Wednesday night was related to another shooting on South 16th Street earlier in the week.
They say it appears the same two groups of people are involved. Someone in a white car… possibly a Pontiac Grand Prix… opened fire on another vehicle as the second car left a convenience store parking lot.
Two people in the second car were hurt when they crashed into another car as they attempted to evade the gunfire. A pedestrian also suffered a bullet wound to the foot.
Authorities say the white car had been seen circling the area prior to the shooting.
