Evanston police say a verbal altercation among several people escalated into a shooting incident late Sunday afternoon in the 1800 block of Lake Street.

Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew says someone fired two shots striking one victim who’s now being treated at a local hospital.

Glew says the suspect or suspects have fled the scene, but residents are advised to avoid the area if possible while police continue their investigation.
