Amid all the illegal fireworks going off in Evanston Tuesday night to mark Independence Day, police say officers on foot patrol in the 1800 block of Darrow Avenue spotted a man firing a rifle in an alley.

Cmdr. Joseph Dugan says the officers heard gunshots and saw muzzle flashes near a garage on the block before the man fled inside a home there.

After an extended search of the garage and adjoining house, the police located a 28-year-old Evanston man believed to be the shooter and a rifle on the property.

No charges had been filed against the suspect as of early this morning.
