Shots Fired at Dobson and Custer
By Larry Gavin

On Oct. 8 at approximately 6:44 p.m., Evanston police officers responded to a call of shots fired in the 700 block of Dobson Street. At the scene, an 18-year old male reported that the shooter may have been shooting at him or at a group on the corner, Commander Diane Davis of the Evanston Police Department told the RoundTable.

Ten minutes earlier, police responded to a call that there was a large group in the 100 block of Custer Avenue, said the Commander. This may have been the group that the 18-year old was referring to. The south end of the 100 block of Custer and the east end of the 700 block of Dobson are at the intersection of those two streets.

Police found shell casings in the 700 block of Dobson, said the Commander. They also found a vehicle whose windshield was shattered by gunfire in the 100 block of Custer  and a vehicle with a bullet hole in the door at about the intersection of Dobson and Custer, said the Commander. She added that these vehicles were not involved in the shooting.

Minutes later, Evanston police responded to another call of shots fired on the south side of Howard Street. Police saw the same 18-year old at that location, said Commander Davis.

No one was injured as a result of the shots fired, she said.
