City police say shots were fired just after midnight today in the 400 block of North Adams in Kankakee. There are no reports of any injuries or damage. Officers did find an unspecified number spent shell casings at the scene.
Reports of gunfire this morning around 10 am outside the Lincoln Cultural Center are apparently unfounded. Witnesses tell us the school went on lockdown for a time after somebody reported seeing a man wave a gun through the window of a passing vehicle, but no shots were fired. And even though the school district sent out an email this morning to parents saying shots had been fired, police say officers found no evidence of any gun-play. Police are, however, searching for a dark colored convertible seen driving west through a nearby alley at the time.
