A Springfield man being held in the Jackson County Jail is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. Authorities say Gary Hughes fired shots at deputies when they contacted him at his home about a felony probation warrant. He told them he wasn’t going back to jail, fired at least one shot, and engaged deputies in a 15-hour standoff. He managed to sneak out of the home and get away, but was located again March 6th and was taken into custody. The 74-year-old fugitive had been on the run for nearly three days. Hughes faces more than a half-dozen charges.
