No one was injured when shots were fired early Sunday near the usually-bustling intersection of State and Chicago in River North. No one is in custody.

Multiple witnesses told police that they heard or saw shots fired between two vehicles in the area around 1:30 a.m.

“They sounded like they were right outside my window,” an area resident said while asking that we not use her name. “A white Dodge Charger and a black Impala sped off afterward.”

The woman’s recollections match details shared with police by other witnesses. Police said a white Dodge Charger with tinted windows was last seen southbound on Clark and then westbound on Ontario followed by a black four-door Impala that may have been shooting at it.

No one showed up with injuries at area hospitals, and no property damage was found.
