WOODLAWN — Car windows were shot out and a bullet went through a man’s window during a Tuesday afternoon shooting in Woodlawn.
According to residents on the block, at least two people fired at least 20 shots at each other at approximately 3:30 p.m. Tuesday near 62nd Street and Kimbark Avenue just as school was about to let out at nearby Carnegie Elementary School.
Police had marked at least nine shell casings on Kimbark Avenue at the scene.
Neighbors said they saw a white Chevy Impala with four men in it speed away down 62nd Street and turn on Dorchester Avenue toward 63rd Street after they heard the shots. Neighbors, who asked not to be identified out of fear of retribution, said they had seen the same car circling the block over the past week.
A spokesman from the Chicago Police Department said there was no information yet about any arrests or injuries related to the shooting.
People on the scene said no one was injured, but said they saw one woman arrested by police, but did not believe she had anything to do with the shooting.
Neighbors said they saw the woman backing her car up on Kimbark Avenue to get away from the shooting when it started and ran into a parked car. She was arrested after being questioned by police, witnesses said.
The block has been marked by daytime gunfire recently.
An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg at 9:30 a.m. on May 17 on the same block and found a block away by police.
