Details

Two occupied cars, including a taxi, were hit by bullets this afternoon after the passenger of a white Mercedes Benz (with Illinois plates) opened fire near the intersection of E. Washington Ave. and Fair Oaks Ave.

There were no reports of injuries, and it does not appear the two vehicles that were struck were intended targets. Who or what he was shooting at, is not known at this time.

Witnesses said the Mercedes was heading outbound on East Washington Ave. and then turned right on Fair Oaks Ave. The MPD, thus far, has recovered nine shell casings at the intersection.

The victims were also driving in the area at the time of the gun violence.
