Two dead in Springfield after standoff
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - Springfield police said they found a man and woman dead inside their home after a standoff that lasted about an hour.
Lt. Eric Reece said police were called to the home Wednesday evening after a girl said her mother had been shot. The girl said she and her two younger siblings escaped to a neighbor's home.
Springfield police attempted to reach someone inside the home for about an hour before entering and finding a man and woman dead. They were identified Thursday as 38-year-old Paul J. Dawson and 33-year-old Robin L. Cameron, both of Springfield. Cox said they were an unmarried couple. Cameron was the mother of all three children.
She said police have not ruled on a cause of death but were not seeking suspects.
