Police officers were patrolling the area when they heard the shots and saw two men in black sweatshirts running southbound from the area, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. When the men were stopped, they told officers they had been shot at. The victims, 20 and 21, are both Evanston residents, Dugan said. They sustained no injuries, he added.

Officers recovered eight 9-millimeter shell casings in an alley near the area, Dugan said.

The identity of the shooter is unknown.
