No injuries were reported after shots were fired on Clark Street near Wrigley Field early Sunday. Video from a nearby webcam showed people running across the ballpark’s plaza and looking back toward the gunfire.
Surveillance video from a nearby business shows two groups of people crossing paths on the sidewalk in front of Shake Shack, 3519 North Clark. A fight broke out for a few seconds, and then the group suddenly broke up as individuals quickly scattered in various directions. .

The footage shows a CPD squad car sitting in the southbound lane of Clark Street near the group. After the crowd scattered, the squad’s blue lights activated and its driver made a U-turn in front of Shake Shack.
