Thanks to Julie for sending: “10+ shots fired very quickly along 14th between Girard and Fairmont; guy went into 14th itself, shooting across 14th before running south down west side of 14th”
Another reader reported at 3:25pm: “Like 20 shots fired near 14th and Fairmont-Girard”

UPDATE I’m getting reader reports a UPS driver may have been injured: “UPS driver hit by gunfire or car. He’s okay, walking it off”
UPDATE: I’ve just seen a photo where UPS driver seems ok but is on a gurney with his leg wrapped next to an ambulance.
Update from MPD:
