Police say a woman is dead in an overnight shooting near Kansas Expressway and Division in Springfield.

Officers were called to the 900 block of west Locust just before 1:00 a.m. Tuesday.

A lieutenant says the victim’s boyfriend called police and said he shot his girlfriend, then led them inside the house where officers found the woman.

She has been identified at Cheyenne Dancause, a 20-year-old from Springfield.

The 21-year-old boyfriend has been taken into custody. He’s now in the Greene County Jail awaiting formal charges.

Officers believe the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute.

Two kids under two years old were inside the house, but were not hurt. They’ve been turned over to the Division of Family Services.
