Shots Fired Call Rising in Springfield

Springfield Police say the number of shots fired calls has been going up since March.

There were nine shots fired calls in February, and 32 reported in June. Police say most of those calls were coming from Northwest Springfield.

Chief Paul Williams says officers are also seeing more incidents of people using firearms to solve disagreements, but overall, there have been fewer shootings so far this year than at this time last year.
