Gang Detectives Investigating Gunfire At 25th and Cherry

Gang detectives found a damaged car and two shaken—but uninjured—men several blocks from the scene of a shooting in the Central District late Wednesday night.

Around 11 pm, police received several 911 calls about gunfire at 25th Ave and E. Cherry Street. At the scene, several witnesses described seeing a black male, wearing a brown coat and dark pants, open fire on a sedan as it drove down the block.

Officers found several shell casings and discovered a car with bullet damage about two blocks away from the scene of the shooting, and found the driver and a passenger of the damaged vehicle. No one was injured in the incident.

Gang Unit detectives interviewed the two men, who told officers they had no idea why anyone would have shot at them.

Gang detectives are handling the investigation.
