Details are sketchy and Springfield Police are releasing very little information about a man who suffered serious injuries at the Kum & Go at National and Norton Road about 2:30 this (04-18-11) morning.

Corporal Matt Brown says responding officers found John William James, Jr., 29, with an injury to the chest.  Some reports say he was stabbed, others say the man was shot.

Brown says four people, one of them a bondsman in Springfield, are being questioned and have some sort of association with James, who underwent surgery for his wound/s.

The store and an area about a block long from the crime scene were taped off as investigators searched for clues in the case.  Investigators were scene bagging evidence from a van on the parking lot today.

James has a lengthy criminal record that includes convictions for trafficking in stolen identities, theft of credit cards or letters of credit, forgery and tampering with motor vehicles.

He was booked into the Greene County jail last Wednesday (04-13-11) and released on bond.  There is no indication if the bonding company connected to his release is connected to this incident.
