Police Charge Man In Shooting Incident Near ETHS

Today, Evanston police charged an Evanston man, 21 years-old, with unlawful use of a firearm in the area of Evanston Township High School, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department.

On June 11, two individuals had a dispute in the front yard of a residence in the 1600 block of Dodge Avenue, said the Commander.  After an exchange of words between the two, gun shots were exchanged. One man fled on foot and was caught by police who were already in the area, said the Commander.  He had a .22 semi-automatic pistol in his possession, has been charged, said the Commander.

Police recovered several shell casings from the front yard where the dispute took place, which indicated a second weapon was used in the incident, said the Commander. The second individual believed to be involved in the exchange of gunfire was taken into custody by police, but at this time no charges have been filed against that individual. Police have been unable to locate the second weapon that was used in the incident after an extensive search of the area, said the Commander, and no witnesses who could identify the second shooter have come forward.
