SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Springfield police set up a large perimeter approximately from Elm Street to Mt. Vernon on Monday, Jan. 25.
KOLR10s crew on the scene saw what appeared to be a bomb robot rolling around on the street. There were several police cars and other first-responder vehicles.
According to some roommates living in a home near the incident, Kylie Lucas and Bex Hudson said they heard someone say “fire in the hole” three times and heard a few explosions.
The roommates said they live streamed the incident from their backyard on Facebook.
