Police respond to several gunshots reports

Patrolling officers responded to several gunshots Friday afternoon just outside of downtown Evanston, police said.

At about 4:20 p.m., officers heard the gunshots while on patrol in the 1600 block of Foster Avenue. When they arrived on the scene, Dugan said, officers did not locate any offenders but found that two houses had been struck by bullets. One house was in the 2000 block of Jackson Avenue and the other in the 1900 block of the same street.

Based on a blurry video, Dugan said police suspect a group of five or six teenagers were fighting when one pulled out a handgun and started shooting.

No one was injured and there are no suspects.
