A Chicago Police bike unit officer on patrol heard shots being fired as he was in the area of 36th Street and Michigan Avenue about 3:20 p.m. and “called it out,’’ according to a Wentworth District police sergeant.
Multiple officers responded and took two men into custody who are believed to be the shooters, the sergeant said.
No one was wounded and the intended victims ran away.
Investigators recovered the gun used during the shooting, which is likely gang-related, the sergeant said.
No charges have been filed.
Chicago Police headquarters is located at 3510 S. Michigan Ave.
