Springfield police are investigating another shooting on the city's north side.

This time a man and a woman were shot at a home at 1831 North Link about 11:30 last night.

One of the victims left the scene but was found a short time later after a call of another shooting came in on N. Delaware Street. When cops arrived at the N. Delaware Street call they didn't find another shooting, but the victim of the Link assault.
