Officers were called at 1:56 a.m. Wednesday to the 700 block of Northeast Adams Street after a resident in the area heard a single shot fired outside one of the Taft Homes apartment complexes.
Four officers were in the area near Wayne Street, the northern boundary of Taft Homes, when another shot exploded in close proximity to the police. The shot was so close, police took cover, then approached the courtyard where the gunfire was believed to have originated.
No one was found, and no shell casings were discovered, though a report noted that the shot sounded like it came from a rifle. It may have been fired out of an apartment window, though it ultimately was unclear whether police officers were the intended targets. Source
