5300 block Milwaukee St.


The night of the Fourth of July, a Milwaukee Street resident heard two cars going eastbound and traveling "superfast" by her home. She next heard a series of "tings" as if bullets were striking things. She ducked down to avoid being hit. Other witnesses reported at least one gunman firing from a red Chevrolet at another sedan which had heavily tinted windows. Officers recovered multiple shell casings spread over some distance along the roadway. They also found a bullet.
