News Release
Shots Fired in the Vernon Neighborhood, One Person Injured - 07/07/19

On Sunday July 7, 2019 at 5:05 A.M., North Precinct officers were dispatched to reports of shots fired in the 1400 block of Northeast Jarrett Street. When they arrived they discovered evidence of gunfire. There were bullet strikes to at least three parked vehicles.

About 15 minutes later, officers received information that a patient had arrived at a local hospital with a gunshot wound. Officers responded and learned that the patient, a male, had what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The Gun Violence Reduction Team (GVRT) was called and is now assuming the investigation.
