Springfield Man In Custody After Overnight Shooting in Kincaid


A Springfield man is facing attempted murder charges after a shooting in Kincaid early Friday morning. 35-year-old Larry L. Scott had his first court appearance Friday morning, where bond was set at one million dollars.


State’s Attorney Mike Havera told the court that the incident started with four men in an argument at 611 E. Dial Street in Kincaid. After the group broke up, two of the men headed towards the 200 block of E. Elm Street in Kincaid. Havera said the victim, Logan Durbin, was not one of the men in the original argument, and he may have been trying to break up the altercation. Witnesses to the shooting say Scott came out of the house he was at on the 200 block of E. Elm and fired two shots at Durbin, both hitting him in the torso. Durbin was transported to St. John’s Hospital in Springfield where he was in critical condition at the time. Havera said he received an update that Durbin was out of surgery and in recovery. Havera said one of the bullets missed Durbin’s heart by 2 centimeters.


Because of the nature of the crime and the risk to the public, Havera asked for and Resident Circuit Judge Brad Paisley granted a bond of one million dollars in the case. Havera says because Durbin was struck, a new amended charge will be filed in the case by Monday. As of now, Scott could face 26 to 50 years in prison if convicted, but those terms would be longer with the new amended charge.
