Two People Arrested after Firing Multiple Gunshots in Springfield


SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — Two people sit in a Springfield jail this morning, after firing multiple gunshots last night.

Springfield police say the shots rang out on the corner of Union and Oak Street a little after 1:30 am. Witnesses say three suspects were shooting multiple rounds at a streetlight. Thankfully, no one is believed to have been struck or injured.

Police later found and arrested two of the three suspects. 21-year-old Keeyo Jones, and 21-year-old Shawanees Robinson are facing multiple weapons violations, including carrying a firearm without a license. Police will continue to investigate.
