Springfield, Missouri – Ah yes, the old “No officer, I have no idea how I got shot routine.”

This is an interesting case in how one of the suspects got caught.

According to KY3, Joseph Allen was sleeping in his home around 4am last Friday morning when multiple home invaders broke into his home.

Allen grabbed a gun and a brief gunfight ensued. Allen was not shot, but did suffer minor injuries which required treatment at a local hospital.

While being treated at the hospital, Allen recognized the voice of one of the suspects in a room near his. He alerted police who then questioned the suspect.

That’s when the suspect pulled out the ol’ amnesia card and claimed he didn’t remember how he got shot.

The authorities aren’t buying it and 20 year old Tre Williams was placed in police custody in the hospital. He is charged with burglary and assault.

The other suspects remain at large.

This is the 41st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Missouri and the 1,226th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
