WILLOW SPRINGS, Mo.-- Ambulances took two men and a woman to a hospital on Wednesday morning after all three were shot in a rural area northeast of Willow Springs. Howell County Sheriff Mike Shannon said the call about the shooting came in about 5 a.m.

In a news release, Shannon identified the three people as Gregory Riley, 34, and Regina Riley, 34, both of Willow Springs, and Johnny Starry of Mountain Grove. The news release didn't say whether the Rileys are married or related another way.

Regina Riley is seriously injured after being shot in the back; she was airlifted to a hospital in Springfield. Gregory Riley was treated and released at the hospital in West Plains. Starry also was treated and released at the hospital in West Plains and then turned over to the sheriff's department.

Willow Springs Police Chief Dan Dunn said his department was called as a backup when the initial call was made to the sheriff's department. Dunn said law officers found Starry, the suspected shooter in a ditch along County Road 3780 near the property. Dunn said officers then found the Rileys on the property.

Dunn said a teenage boy was at the property but was not hurt and wasn’t believed to be involved.

The chief thinks the two men shot each other and the woman was hit in the crossfire

quit trying to start drama. I'm pretty sure the p.d knew who they arrested and the last name to starry not Collins. God, are you guys really that stupid? I mean who will believe what's coming out of your mouth when the police report is right in front of everybody's face.

Well if you knew anything then you would know that yes Johnny Starry and Johnny Collins are one and the same. His Mom has been married to a Collins for better then 20 years

Ok lets see here.....a couple of years? I know for a fact that he was around Bub for a couple of years back when Loxie was born and Mom Laura is still married to Bub, so even if he was back a forth between his dads family then there is still a "couple" more years there, so quit with the splitting hairs

When you children all get through arguing about the family relation, can anyone say what this shooting was all about? What was it over?

Sounds to me like all of you are uneducated idiots. Learn how to write and spell properly so people can really understand you. Who cares who belongs to who? They are all druggies and lucky to be alive. Tis a shame that there are kids involved who will suffer more than any of the three involved.

When I first heard about this,my first thought was: is this Bernice's brother? I have known John to be a lazy no good piece of shit junkie. Always looking for the next person he could rip off. He has never had a job that I know of and has lived off other peoples kindness. He is not the good ole boy he would have folks believe....What did his mother and stepdad do to this family? They have one by one fucked up they're kids so bad that THEY should be charged too! They should really be proud. I'm not saying that as an excuse for John, I personally have never liked him. I saw him for WHAT he really was....a predator.

I believe that john has probably sobered up by now and wishes things didn't happen like they did. He does have a good side to him I haven't forgotten. He used to go down and help us cut firewood just to help. What he has I belive is an illness. That doesn't take away from the terrible things done that morning but its more hurt for me than anger. I'm staying out of all of this and letting forensic experts figure it all out. I wish everyone else could do the same! When we get on here and hurt eachother, I think its as bad in some ways as what was done in this tradgedy. Not everybody can shoulder being called names, or having there personal pains and pasts posted for all to see. I would like to know what makes everyone who comes on this topic or any other any better than John, Greg or anyone else? Let me guess, cuz you aren't a so called druggie, or narc, or a thief, cheater, or a lazy person. Well, so you don't get drunk almost once a week or more, maybe exaggerate how bad the pain is to the doctors, sell your meds, sell your foodstamps meant to feed the kids, buy cigarettes instead of new shoes for your kids, look at an attractive person and think bad thoughts, or come on Topix telling on your so called friends well hate to tell you thats the definition of a snitch haha! I am so thankful that I can give a damp who is telling on who! Don't get on drugs and guess what? You don't have to care anymore! Hell , I'm far from perfect myself, I still drink beer when I can afford to, I've always been a flirt, and ive lost slot of old friends due to me staying out of the lifestyles that make you scared to be busted, or consume me. All I ask is for you to read this before you continue your guy's pissin match. Hell, if I can be level headed who can't? Have a good day

When will this big saggy bag of wind deflate? If anything maybe you should buy your kids some new shoes.
