- "Around 6:30 tonight I heard a single gunshot down the Magnolia/Malden alley north of Sunnyside. The cops showed up immediately. I heard on the scanner someone ran into Sheridan Park Liquors and said two black males, one with dreadlocks, shot at him. They ran west down Sunnyside." Another reader -- a police officer -- confirmed there were shots fired near the Mall early in the evening.
- Apparently that was just Round One. We got many reports of shots fired (between 5 and 7 rounds, in two bursts) at 10:45pm. "There were gunshots fired in front of 1322 W Sunnyside around 1045 pm tonight. My neighbors said that there were 2 males running east on Sunnyside immediately after the gunfire. Police arrived within 5 minutes and patrolled the area."
"Around 11:00 tonight around 4528 N Magnolia there were two shots. Cops showed up and found two 9mm shell casings. A group of teens wearing white t-shirts was seen running east down Sunnyside, but witnesses couldn't be sure if they were victims or shooters. They stopped a gray van around Montrose and Marine they thought was involved."
