Oak Park has had two shootings in one week, with the second occurring just one day after the Aug. 17 shooting that resulted in the death of one victim in the 800 block of South Harlem Avenue.

While the details of the most recent shooting are limited, the 911 dispatch center received a call at about 2 p.m., Aug. 18 that shots had been fired in the 500 block of North Taylor Avenue, according to Oak Park spokesman David Powers. The caller, whose location was not noted, did not provide information as to who or how many people were involved.

 When Oak Park police arrived at the scene, Powers told Wednesday Journal officers “found several shell casings, but no suspects or victims were located.” The area was canvassed for witnesses and cameras, according to Powers, but no new information has emerged so far.
