A 28-year-old Springfield man has been charged with first-degree murder in a weekend shooting outside Traffic, a downtown nightclub.
Travis D. Mack was charged late Sunday, according to police. He's accused of shooting Kenneth Dixon Jr., 26.
Dixon was shot Friday night. Sources say he had just left Traffic, a bar with a history of problems, when he was gunned down. Cops said they found Dixon "lying on the sidewalk and unresponsive."
Two eyewitnesses helped finger Mack for the shooting, cops say. But as of Monday morning, Mack remained at large. Police are dangling a potential $1,000 Crime Stoppers reward for more information; call (417) 869-8477.
