Two incidents of gunfire reported overnight to Bloomington police

Bloomington police investigated two instances of shots fired within city limits Monday night and early Tuesday morning, according to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo.

Police responded to a complaint of shots fired in the area of S. Odell Drive Monday night at approximately 6:43 p.m. Officers located three .40 caliber spent casings, and two unspent casings of the same caliber in a parking lot.

It was reported to police that three shots were fired then a silver Chevy Cobalt, black truck, and a silver SUV left the scene. Police did not locate any damage to nearby vehicles or residences, according to Pedigo. Police did not locate a suspect in the shooting.

Around 12:25 a.m. police responded after multiple callers reported hearing gunshots in the area of W. 13th Street according to Pedigo.

A witness told police they heard what sounded like firecrackers then witnessed multiple shots being fired from a handgun. There were four or five men in the area where the shots were fired, and then an SUV was driven away at a high rate of speed.

Police found 8 empty .380 caliber handgun spent casings at the scene but failed to locate a suspect. Pedigo said nobody was injured by the gunfire, but this morning police were called after a bullet hole had been found in the front window of an apartment in the 1300 block of W. 13th Street.
