Springfield Shooting Investigation
SPRINGFIELD -- The gunman is still on the run this morning and 23-year-old Michael Holmes is still in critical condition. Holmes was just a few steps away from his house but never made it home. Instead, he had to fight for life right in this alley.
ABC 22/FOX 45 Reporter Amber Watson talked to his stepfather. He tells me Holmes left the house last night to buy a bag of ice for his mother. The gas station he went to is just a block away. As he was walking back home two men allegedly pulled him into the alley and tried to jump him.
The stepfather tells us when Holmes tried to fight back he was shot in the back in front of his 14-year-old brother.
Police are trying to determine if Holmes was shot twice. Witnesses heard two gunshots. The family tells me if he wasn't so close to home where he could call for his mother Holmes may have never survived.
The family says the two men involved took off in such a hurry that they left behind the gun and one of the men lost a shoe. All of that was collected as evidence.
Holmes was flown to the hospital. He was reportedly alert and able to talk a little.
Police still do not have a good description of the gunmen but they may be able to capture some images from the surveillance video at the Marathon gas station nearby.
SPRINGFIELD -- A man is flown to the hospital by CareFlight after he is shot in the back.
It happened around 11:00 Tuesday night in the area of Northwestern Avenue.
A witness said he was across the street in his truck during the shooting. He says he saw two men chasing another guy and during the chase the men went into an alley. Then, the witness heard two gunshots and the two men took off. The victim was able to walk out of the alley and scream for help, saying he was shot. According to that witness, the victim's mother then came out to help her son and called 911.
The witness tells us the victim is in his 20s. He says the victim was just trying to run to the gas station to get ice when he was approached by the gunman. Since it was dark the witness did not get a good look at the two men involved in the shooting.
The victim is in critical condition.
