Gunshots heard late last night / early this morning around 1:15AM?

I live at the intersection of Pine Grove and W Sheridan Rd and noticed all of a sudden several very loud gunshots while lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Granted I did have my windows open it sounded far too close for comfort. I'm wondering if anybody else heard the same thing? I was obviously wide awake again after hearing this for quite some time and did not hear any sirens of any sort after the matter indicating police activity but I am sure of what I heard! Its a bit unsettling.

  • I live further West in Lakeview and heard the same thing around 1:15 this morning. The first time I heard it I thought it might be the L but I was pretty sure they were gunshots after the next two.

  • user_me Fairly new tho the city young professional.

    Yes, there isn't a doubt in my kind that what I heard were gunshots unfortunately. Couldn't have possibly been firecrackers :(
