NORMAL — Shots were fired late Wednesday night near uptown Normal, but there was no indication anyone was injured, police said.

An officer coming to work at the nearby Normal police station heard the gunfire at 11:04 p.m., police said. Shell casings indicating more than one shot had been fired were found in a parking lot in the 300 block of Taylor Street, police said.

The two-block, east-west street runs from Linden Street to Chiddix Junior High School on Walnut Street.

There was property damage, but police declined to disclose what was damaged because of the ongoing investigation.

No one was detained in the incident late Wednesday, police said.

The gunfire came less than a week after shots were fired at a party on the other side of the Illinois State University campus.

About 12:15 a.m. Saturday, Normal police responded to the Woodridge Apartments at 700 N. Adelaide St. where they found a large party, but no reported injuries.

Anyone with information related to the shootings is asked to call the Normal Police Department at 309-454-9535 or McLean County Crime Stoppers at 309-888-1111.
