Attempted Murder Sends Springfield Man to the Hospital

Springfield Police are investigating a shooting that injured one man.

He was shot late Monday night in an alley in the 800 block of East Cedar street after what police say was an argument. He was taken to St. John’s Hospital with life threatening injuries, but Springfield Deputy Police Chief Cliff Buscher said today he’s expected to survive.

The man’s son was with him at the time, but didn’t see the suspect. Buscher says they have a suspect in mind, and this wasn’t a random crime. No one is in custody.
