Police Investigating Two Rolling Gunfights

Police are investigating two rolling gun battles that happened late Tuesday in the 23rd and Union, and Beacon Hill neighborhoods.

Witnesses told officers they saw a dark green Chevy Tahoe chasing a light colored SUV through the 23rd and Union neighborhood around 10:30 PM. Passengers in both vehicles were reportedly firing at each other, and officers collected numerous shell casings at the scene.

Roughly 20 minutes later, a North Beacon Hill home was sprayed by gunfire during another rolling gun battle.

Witnesses there reported hearing volleys of gunfire in the 1400 block of South Hill Street and then seeing two, large, four-door vehicles speed away.

A BMW was struck by a bullet, and a home was hit five times. Police collected 15 shell casings.

No one was injured in either shooting. Gang unit detectives are investigating.
