SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Police are investigating an assault near Park Central Square.  they don't think they're getting the truth from the victim, however. Springfield police said they responded to a call of shots fired in the 200 block of North Campbell Avenue just after 10 o'clock Friday night. When arriving on scene, officers said a man told them three men beat him up, and one of the men had a knife.  Police, though, said there is no evidence a knife was used.      The victim's girlfriend said, while the three men were fleeing, one pulled a gun out and fired two rounds.  Officers said there is also no evidence of a gun was used, because there was no property damage in the area.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A judge convicted a man from Springfield on Thursday for sexually abusing his roommate six years ago.   Greene County Circuit Judge Tom Mountjoy plans to sentence Brandon Mckean-Shields, 36, on Jan. 10 for deviate sexual assault and first-degree sexual misconduct. Mckean-Shields waived his right to a jury trial.  The judge heard evidence that the victim and the defendant were roommates in 2007.  The victim testified she was comfortable living with the defendant because he and her cousin had a baby together.  The victim made it clear to the defendant that the relationship was platonic and, in fact, told him that he should treat her like a sister.  Nonetheless, in January 2007, during the ice storm, Mckean-Shields sexually assaulted her in the living room of their home.  The victim told Mckean-Shields to stop and left the living room and moved to her bedroom.  Mckean-Shields followed the victim into the bedroom and sexually assaulted her again.  The victim did not initially call the police because she was nervous about the incident and she was concerned about confrontation with Mckean-Shields.  She ultimately did report the incident to the police after being encouraged to do so by her cousin and mother.  Springfield police officers collected the victim's sheets and the defendant's DNA was found on her sheets.  In a police interview, Mckean-Shields admitted to trying to “seduce” the victim but claimed she turned down...

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- City police are investigating a claim that a developmentally-delayed girl was sexually assaulted at YMCA on East Republic Road. An incident report indicates a male and female were involved in the incident at the Pat Jones YMCA sometime in the last two weeks. The report provides no further details as the claim is under investigation. Two YMCA members who were interviewed outside the building on Wednesday said the accusation is alarming. "It's just very unfortunate.  The YMCA is a very family-oriented gym and you see a lot of mentally handicapped kids here at the Y.  It's terrible that that happened.  They usually got quite a lot of people in the gyms, even upstairs in the weight room.  It's just hard to believe that that actually happened,” said member Nick Heisler.
