Six people were injured during the shooting.
Police responded in about a minute, Graf said.
“This went down fairly quickly,” he said. “The suspects left virtually as soon as the shooting happened.”
The five people taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center were expected to be treated and released, Lt. Jeff Williams said. A sixth victim was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.
None of the injuries appear to be life-threatening, the police chief said.

When the gunfire broke out, it resulted in a chaotic scene.
South Yellow Springs Street was blocked in the area of South Yellow Springs and West John streets, and there were bullet holes visible in the doors and windows of the building where the shooting happened.
The building is just north of a drive-thru business on South Yellow Springs Street and near the intersection of John Street in the city’s southwest side.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol assisted Springfield police at the scene and at the hospital. Investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation also assisted police at the scene.
The motive behind the shooting isn’t clear yet, but it is not believed to be a hate crime or gang-related at this time, Graf said.
He encouraged anyone with any information to call 911 dispatchers at 937-324-7680 and ask to speak with someone from the Springfield Police Division.
