    I live around 12th and Euclid. Last night I was awoken around 4am by what sounded like 4-5 gunshots. Has this been reported anywhere else?

      I live on 13th and Girard and heard the same thing at around the same time, and then a car speed away. Haven’t seen anything on it in any of the usual places, though.

      I live on 11th/Florida and I heard that too. The pop-pop-pop sound definitely was not fireworks. I heard a car speed off, and then about 5 minutes later a patrol car drove off on 11th heading north. Saw the lights through my window.

      I haven’t seen any confirmation of what happened.

        Strange that there hasn’t been any mention of this in the police reports. I also saw a police car driving through the neighborhood with its lights on a few minutes after the noises.

  • I also had reports of shots fired in Hill East last night.

    I live 2 blocks away and wasn’t home then, but last night police had a block taped off at 9th and Sheridan, but I don’t know what for. This neighborhood has seen an uptick in violence this summer and it’s so scary.
