An arrest warrant has been issued for the victim of a drug shooting in Springfield.
Joseph Atkinson, 19, was shot in the torso in June in what police say was a dispute over stolen drugs. Four men have been charged in connection with the shooting, and Atkinson was also cited into court for drug possession. But he failed to show up at his hearing Tuesday.
The prosecutor says Atkinson's mother told him in late June that that her son was recovering from the gunshot wound in New Jersey and didn't understand why he needed to go to court.Related Stories:
