Springfield police carried out a raid at a home in the 400 block of Vine Street on Thursday.

Officers and detectives carried out several evidence collection bags from the two-story house.

In front, there were 12 police vehicles, including an evidence collection unit and two other marked cruisers.

Police did not confirm whether the raid was connected to the mass shooting Sunday on Clifton Avenue that killed one woman, identified as 23-year-old De’Arion Welliford of Springfield, and injured two men and two women, all between 19 and 24.

Police have not made any arrests in connection to the shootings, officials said Thursday.

The shooting happened shortly before 3 a.m. Police said they started their investigation after they received several calls about shots fired in the area of 1227 Clifton Ave.

Neighbors on Monday said they were awakened by loud banging noises early Sunday morning, and witnessed a large crowd outside, with people shouting and running in the street.

Clark County Sheriff’s deputies and troopers from the Springfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol assisted at the scene. At least a few blocks of streets around the Clifton Avenue scene were cordoned off early Sunday for the investigation.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call authorities at 937-324-7685.
