8 shots fired, no one injured outside Wrigley Field

No one was reported injured after shots were fired near the Chicago Cubs players’ parking lot in Wrigleyville on Wednesday evening. The sound of the gunfire was captured on a nearby webcam that shows a Chicago police unit was just a block away when the shots were fired.

On the Near North Side, someone fired shots that struck a restaurant’s window early Thursday. Once again, no injuries were reported.

No arrests have been made in either incident.

Police responded to calls of shots fired near Wrigley Field around 5:25 p.m. Cops worked with Cubs security personnel who located security video footage that shows two men wearing black hoodies firing a gun in the 3700 block of North Seminary — just steps from the stadium’s left field bleachers.

CPD cameras showed the men walking north on Seminary and then west on Grace after they popped off the rounds.

An Earthcam web feed from the corner of Addison and Clark shows a CPD paddy wagon turning north onto Clark Street about 30 seconds before the gunshots.

The police unit can be seen sitting at the intersection of Clark and Waveland as four shots ring out at the 33-second mark in the video above. Two more shots are heard at the 40-second mark, followed by another two at the 43-second mark.

No officers reported hearing shots fired at the time of the incident.

Then, around 2 a.m. Thursday, someone fired shots on the 800 block of North Orleans in the Near North neighborhood. Cops found five shell casings at the scene and discovered a window shot out at The Cafeteria, 840 North Orleans.

Police are investigating both incidents
