SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A man has been charged in a stealing attempt in which a shot was fired inside a south Springfield Wal-Mart.

The Springfield News-Leader reports (http://sgfnow.co/1IcQzXC ) that 22-year-old Billy Littlefield is charged with first-degree robbery.

Littlefield has also been questioned about his possible involvement in an attempted murder in Los Banos, California, on Nov. 27.

Littlefield and another suspect, 20-year-old Peyton Garnica, were released from Greene County Jail three days after the Wal-Mart incident when police in California said the men wouldn’t be extradited.

A warrant has now been issued for Littlefield’s arrest. Garnica hasn’t been formally charged in the crime.

Littlefield’s brother, Carl Littlefield, was also a suspect in the incident. Authorities say he was arrested in California earlier this week after leading state troopers on a chase in a stolen vehicle.
