GPD respond to second instance of shots fired this week

Galesburg Police officers responded to the second shots fired call this week Thursday morning.

According to reports, at just after 2, officers heard what they believed to be a gun shot coming from Berrien Street, and observed a vehicle depart from the scene and two subjects running east.

Foot patrols in the area yielded interviews which then lead officers to a grassy area in the 1000-block of Berrien Street where a 9mm shell casing was found. Reports indicate that a 9mm bullet was also found in the area.

This follows a shots fired call that went out Sunday morning on East Knox Street and Michigan Avenue. Officers are investigating both incidents.
