Shots were fired Sunday afternoon just steps from the Magnificent Mile, but no one is believed to have been injured.

Police responded calls of shots fired on the 100 block of East Walton around 1:45 p.m. The Drake Hotel and 900 North Michigan shopping mall are located on opposite corners of the intersection.

Witnesses gave cops conflicting accounts of what happened — with some mentioning a Dodge Charger, others remembering a black Audi, and others seeing a man run from the area with a fanny pack over his chest.

Detectives were trying to piece together exactly what took place.

Officers took a report to document damage to property caused by bullets.
