Cops Investigate Gunfire In Lakeview Saturday Afternoon

Police are investigating an incident in which a gun was fired during a confrontation in Lakeview on Saturday afternoon. No one is in custody and no injuries were reported.

Around 3 p.m., a resident of the 3500 block of North Marshfield reported that two men were in the alley shooting a gun. Police spoke with the caller and a witness who saw the situation unfold.

The caller reported that he was preparing to confront the two men when one of them flashed a gun in the man’s direction. Once the man was within 15- or 20-feet, the offender fired a single shot. The gunman and his companion then fled.

Police said the man with the gun was white and was wearing blue jeans with a tan coat that had the hood up. His companion was also white and was wearing a black coat. The two were last seen walking westbound on Cornelia.

A police officer recovered a single 40-caliber shell casing from the scene.
