Springfield Police are looking for a male and a female that may have fired shots and wounded a man near Ash and South 14th Streets late Wednesday night.

Deputy Police Chief Dan Mounce says the victim, 26-year old Darnell Hayes, reports he heard a disturbance outside his home around 11pm and when he opened the door, two shots were fired, one hitting him in the leg.

Mounce says several witnesses saw a man and a woman flee from the scene. Police will not say if this incident is connected to recent shootings in that eastside area and are asking for any information related to this shooting.

Sangamon and Menard Crimestoppers will take anonymous tips at 788-8427 or their website.
