Police: Man fires rifle on Darrow


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.
