Shots were fired into an unoccupied apartment at McDougald Terrace housing community early Sunday morning.

A bullet struck a water pipe in the apartment's kitchen, located in the 1200 block of Wabash Street, causing the pipe to burst.

No one was injured. But gushing water damaged the apartment.

Police received a call alerting officers about the shooting shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday and six people were evacuated from the flooded apartment.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said, shortly before noon Monday, that no persons had been charged in relation to the shooting “at this time.”
