Sheller Road shooters miss intended targets

Since last Friday the Sunnyside Police Department has received three reports of shots fired and a report of a weapon displayed in an attempt to threaten an individual.

Just before 6 p.m. Friday a resident in the 1800 block of Sheller Road reported a drive-by shooting. Five shots were reported fired. Police responded to the call and found no one was injured as a result of the gunfire. Those at the scene were unable to provide suspect information to police.

At about 7:45 p.m. on Friday a call from the Sunnyside McDonald's was received. The caller said three male suspects threatened a customer and as the suspects were leaving, one displayed a weapon. Police were unable to locate the victim or suspects.

Shots were reported fired in the 1400 block of East Ida Belle Avenue this past Saturday at about 1:45 p.m. Police investigating the call were unable to locate evidence of gunfire in the area.
