On Tuesday, October 08, 2019 at 12:09 p.m, North Precinct officers responded to the 5900 block of Northeast Wygant Street on reports of shots fired in the area. When officers arrived they found evidence of gunfire. No injuries have been reported relating to this shooting.

Preliminary information suggests shots were exchanged between two vehicles that were mobile. Given the circumstances of the incident, there does not appear to be a threat to the community.
