Woman finds three bullet holes in her car

A 34-year-old woman found three bullet holes in her car in west Evanston on Friday.

The woman found a bullet hole in the rear driver’s side of her vehicle, a gold 1992 Lexus, along with bullet holes in the gas tank and the driver’s side door, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

She had parked her vehicle in an alley in the 2100 block of Emerson Street, where police said the incident occurred at about 11:45 p.m.

Several rooftop air-conditioning parts stolen 

Someone stole parts belonging to three rooftop air-conditioning units from downtown Evanston sometime before Monday.

An unknown person removed electrical parts from rooftops in the 1600 block of Sherman Avenue, which could cost about $2,000 to repair, Parrott said. The management company of the building reported the incident, with the damages only being noticed Monday, when the air conditioning was turned on, police said.

The incident occurred in the same building in which World of Beer, 1601 Sherman Ave., is located.
