Springfield standoff: Suspect ID’d who shoots at house, then holes up inside

A man shot into a Springfield house Friday morning and then barricaded himself inside.

Law enforcement used tear gas to force the man outside the duplex in the 100 block of West Perrin Avenue, ending the nearly five-hour standoff.

Robert Kenneth Boulware-Faison III, 29, was identified as the suspect, Springfield police Sgt. Cassidy Cantrell confirmed Friday night.

Boulware-Faison is held without bond in the Clark County Jail, and likely will be arraigned Monday in Clark County Municipal Court. He is facing aggravated burglary, tampering with evidence and weapons charges, jail records show.

Police responded shortly after 8 a.m. to reports of a person shooting into the duplex.

The other side of the duplex was evacuated, and police blocked the area of West Perrin Avenue and South Center Boulevard to traffic.
