Man from Springfield Arrested, Charged in Connection with Shooting at Apartment Complex

Prosecutors in Springfield are filing charges against a man for shooting at an apartment complex in southeast Springfield.

Investigators say 31-year-old Samuel McQueen opened fire at the Mehli Pines Apartments in Southern Hills Boulevard June 23 from his apartment at a complex nearby.

He told police he had been arrested for trespassing earlier that day and was upset.

Officers say McQueen told them he would have “emptied the whole clip” if the gun wouldn’t have jammed.

No injuries were reported. McQueen is charged with unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action.
