There have been two more shootings since Wednesday night that may… or may not… be connected to the string of gunfire incidents around Springfield since March.
In one incident, police responded to a report of shots fired near a home on South 12th Street. No one was hit or hurt there, but in a second incident a few hours later, a man was wounded in the leg.
Police Lieutenant Dan Mounce says the department is still investigating possible ties to more than two dozen other shootings in the last two months.
There have been a couple of arrests on weapons charges in recent days… but it’s unclear whether they are connected to some or all of those recent incidents.
