Woman Who Told Police She Was Shot Can't Remember How, When


SPRINGFIELD -- Police are looking for answers in an odd report of a shooting in Springfield on Tuesday.

Police said a 21-year-old woman was shot in the hip sometime Tuesday -- she just can't tell them when.

According to her statement, she was walking along the 1700 block of South 1st Street at about 12:30am Tuesday. She told police she did not encounter anyone during that time, nor did she ever hear a gunshot.

She said she didn't even realize she had been shot until someone at her residence noticed she was bleeding. Police were called about nine hours after she was walking on 1st Street.

The woman was treated for a non-life threatening injury.

Police say they'll take any information on the low-on-details shooting. Tips can be called into the Springfield Police Department (217) 788-8311 and/or Sangamon/Menard County Crime Stoppers (217) 788-8427.
