Planned fight results in shooting

SPRINGFIELD – Two women were injured after a “pre-planned fight” led to a shooting on South 32nd Street on Nov. 3.

At 10:09 p.m., Springfield Police Department officers responded to a call near the 200th block of South 32nd Street, which was made after residents heard gunshots.

Two women, aged 16 and 20, had been shot, and both were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Their names have not been released by SPD.

SPD officers discovered that the two victims and a few friends went to that location for a “pre-planned fight with an opposing group.” When the other group had arrived for the fight, they shot the two victims, who were sitting inside their vehicle.

Officers contacted witnesses to no avail, as they were unwilling to cooperate with the investigation, according to police. Detectives were also called to the scene.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information or video surveillance regarding this shooting should contact SPD at 541-726-3721.
