CROWN HEIGHTS: Over 30 Shots Fired in Early Morning Shootout
CROWN HEIGHTS [CHI] — They injured a car and a van, but managed to strike very little else. A dueling duo turned the intersection of Albany Avenue and President Street into their own O.K. Corral, firing over thirty shots at each other from opposite sides of the street.
The incident unfolded at around 5:30 this morning, where two unknown assailants began exchanging gunfire as each retreated in the opposite direction of each other, their shell casings peppering the streets.
After the dust settled it seemed like no one was hurt, except two Jewish owned vehicles, a Nissan sedan which was struck multiple times, and the Road Sage Mitzvah Tank which took a single bullet.
Police received multiple calls alerting them to the shootout, and when they arrived they found the street littered with shell casings and called for an evidence collection team and detectives.
