Car crash and a shooting could be related

Springfield - A shooting is under investigation, possibly related to a car crash.

The shooting happened Wednesday, in the 2000 block of Stevenson Drive. Police say, shots were fired outside of a car. A 21-year-old woman walking by was hit in the foot. She is expected to be okay. The intended target, driving a Chrysler 200, tried to avoid the gunshots, crashing into a pickup truck on Stevenson Drive. Both vehicles were damaged.

Police are looking over surveillance video from a nearby business. They believe the shooting was intentional, the suspect's vehicle was seen circling the area before the shooting. Detectives are currently investigating any connection to a recent shooting on South 16th Street, as the same two groups appear to be involved.

No one was seriously hurt.
