NORMAL — No one was injured when shots were fired Tuesday night in north Normal, but officers found damage to a residence on Curtis Court near the 100 block of Shelbourne Drive.

"Our officers were called to the northern part of town (Tuesday) at about 5:45 p.m.," said Normal Police Chief Rick Bleichner. "We had received reports of possible shots fired. Once we arrived on scene we located some damage to a residence there, and we located other evidence that shots had been fired."

Officers interviewed people in the area, "and at this time we're still working through the investigation," the chief said Wednesday afternoon. "At this time, we are not aware of any other damage that had been done or any victims or anybody who were hit or struck by gunfire."

No arrests have been made in connection with the gunfire, but while investigating the shooting police took a person into custody on unrelated charges, said Bleichner.

In nine shooting incidents in Normal this year, no one has been struck by gunfire, but police verified shots were fired at people, buildings or cars, Bleichner said. The number is up from six at this time last year.
