Police say an argument between neighbors over an alleged theft led to a shooting — sending one man to the hospital and another to the police station. 

Sgt. Flint Roufs, with the Springfield Police Department, said police were called out to the 2500 block of West Lincoln Street after the neighbors were arguing in their backyards to the point it escalated to a shooting this morning. 

Roufs said the injured party’s condition is serious, but not life-threatening after he was shot in the torso. He was transported to a local hospital.

The shooter surrendered peacefully to police and was taken to headquarters for questioning, Roufs said. 

Because the incident appeared to be isolated to the neighbors, police do not suspect any ongoing threats in the area.
