Shots Fired Outside Uptown Sporting Goods Store

No injuries were reported when shots were fired on a bustling Uptown street corner Saturday afternoon, police said. No one is in custody.

Witnesses said the shots rang out after an argument inside a sporting goods store spilled onto the street at 4601 North Broadway around 3:40 p.m.

The participants were three tall, skinny black men, police said. One ran southbound on Broadway wearing a white sleeveless shirt and blue jeans. Two others fled north: One wearing a white shirt with orange pants and another whom police did not describe further.

A developer last summer proposed replacing the one-story City Sports building with transit-oriented apartments.
