Oak Park police are investigating a shooting that occurred around midnight, Nov. 7. Officers responded to a report of gunshots in the block of 1000 South Maple Street, according to Oak Park spokesman David Powers.
“Multiple shell casings were discovered, and a canvas reported two dark vehicles traveling east on Lexington Street, their occupants firing shots at each other,” Powers said.
Police found a bullet lodged in the porch wall of a house in the 900 block of Wisconsin Street, but it did not penetrate the home and no injuries were reported, Powers told Wednesday Journal. Two other bullets also struck the porch of the house.
“A Berwyn resident later contacted police to report that he was driving east on Lexington shortly after midnight in the area of Clinton Avenue when the passenger side mirror of his vehicle was struck by gunfire,” Powers said. “He reported seeing two dark colored vehicles traveling east on Lexington Street at a high rate of speed, the occupants shooting at each other.”
No arrests have been made at this time.
