Evanston police are searching for a Ford SUV that witnesses say was involved in a shots-fired incident about 9:40 this morning near the intersection of Washington Street and Florence Avenue.

Unknown at this point how many shots were fired or whether any objects were hit. No reports of any injuries, though.

After the incident, the car reportedly drove down an alley between Washington and Main streets west to Dewey Avenue and headed southbound from there.

  1. Gunshots Main/Florence
    I heard these at almost exactly 9:27am. 3 in rapid succession. High caliber.
    Called in. Someone beat me to it. No visuals on suspected vehicle.

    1. Thanks for clarification
      Thank you for clarifying, as the article said 9:40 and I was reading it at 9:32. Close to home, and concerning.
