An initial investigation by the Highland Park Department of Public Safety hasn’t determined a motive for a drive-by shooting involving three houses in the 3300 block of Beverly Drive on the evening of Jan. 9.
Between 9:24 and 9:49 p.m., a vandal fired bullets through windows of three houses. At one house, two separate bullets caused additional damage to a set of curtains and a lamp shade before becoming lodged in a law book and a Gulbransen piano. One witness saw a car speeding eastbound on Beverly, toward North Central Expressway, shortly after hearing gunshots.
HPDPS Sgt. Lance Koppa said the shooting appears to be “a random, reckless act,” although investigators are still trying to gather evidence. Nobody was injured, and there are no suspects.
“There’s nothing to tie the offense to one specific property or one person,” Koppa said. “Somebody thought it would be fun to drive down the street and fire a weapon.”
