A Springfield woman is hospitalized after being shot in the back on Wednesday morning.
The woman called 911 just after midnight to say that she had been shot and police tracked her phone to a location near Battlefield and Lone Pine.
Springfield Lt. Curt Ringgold told the media that the woman had been in a car with a man at the location but would not provide any details about the incident, including if the shooting happened inside or outside the car.
The vehicle had fled the scene by the time officers arrived on site.
The SPD investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to call 417-864-1810.
