Multiple Evanston residents reported hearing several shots fired just south of the 700 block of Dobson Street  — about two miles south of Northwestern’s campus limit — Tuesday around 11:30 a.m, Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said.

The police were contacted via phone, and one caller reported seeing a small black car leaving the surrounding area where the alleged shots were fired, Polinski said.

EPD officers promptly responded to the calls and visited the area, but they were unable to locate the car or evidence of any gunshots.

The machine was broken sometime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., according to the 46-year-old Redbox representative who called the police.

The damage is estimated at $750, police said.
