Police Looking for Gun-Wielding Man

Springfield police are looking for a man they say displayed a gun before a group of people on West Cook Street.

Officers say a 17 year old man ran through a backyard on west Edwards street, claiming a man with a gun was after him. They later┬álearned a man in his 20′s with black dreadlocks with blonde tips displayed a handgun in the parking lot of the apartment complex, walked into the building, and shortly thereafter walked back out without firing the weapon.

It’s unclear who the man was looking for, but apparently wasn’t targeting anyone in the group.
