Multiple callers reported shots fired near the 1100 block of Pitner Avenue early Tuesday morning, police said.

The calls came in around 1:30 a.m., Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said. EPD officers responded to the calls and patrolled the area but found no evidence of gunshots or firearms, Polinski said.

Since no evidence was found, police will not increase the frequency of patrolling around the area, Polinski added.

Cell phone stolen from unlocked car

An unlocked car was burglarized in an alley behind the 1900 block of Asbury Avenue on Tuesday morning, police said.

The car owner, a 41-year-old Evanston man, reported the crime when he found his cell phone missing from the front seat of his 1996 Chevrolet pick-up truck where he had left it charging between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., Polinski said. The cell phone is valued at $700, Polinski added.

Police investigated the burglary but have no leads on a suspect, Polinski said.
