Crime Stoppers needs your help in identifying the shooters in a drive-by shooting which occurred in the Springfield area recently. On November 25th at 8 o’clock in the evening several shots were fired at a home at 1913 South Grand Ave East. There were five persons in the home, including an infant, and a 15 year old male was injured when one of the dozen or so shots fired struck him in the foot. Police have suspects in the shooting and it is not believed to be a random act.
