BR: Over 70 rounds fired during middle of day

A high school was placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure after nearly 70 rounds were fired nearby.

It was around 2pm when multiple shot spotters went off alerting police officers to dozens of shots fired by various guns.

Pictures of the scene show several evidence markers spread out over a few blocks. Each marker is a shell casing. Plus, officers were searching nearby areas to ensure they did not miss any shell casings.

70 rounds fired

It happened in the 600 block of East McKinley St. near Thomas Delpit. That’s 0.1 miles from McKinley High School, which is why the school was placed on a temporary lockdown.


At least two homes were riddled with bullets as the houses were occupied. Thankfully no one was injured in the nearly 70 rounds fired.

Multiple officers remained on the scene hours after the shooting.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with any information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP or submit an anonymous tip online.
