Robbery/Shooting Arrest Made

Springfield police say they've caught the man responsible for shooting another man with a shotgun last week.

21 year old Jamal Jones 1132 East Avenue was jailed on attempted murder and armed robbery charges.

Jones is accused of shooting 30 year old Kelvin Smith in front of his 13th Court home on Wednesday November 15th.

The victim told police five men jumped from some bushes and robbed him in his front-yard as he arrived at his home on east 13th court. The victim was shot with shotgun pellets as the robbers drove away in a Cadillac Escalade.

Smith was treated and released at a local hospital. He later identified Jones (known on the streets as "no") as the gunman.

Investigators are still looking for the others involved in the robbery.
