Shots reportedly fired near gun shop off Broadway

Two suspects were outside entrance, motorist tells police

Posted

A person reported being shot at after driving past two male suspects who stood near the door of a gun shop on East Girard Avenue in downtown Englewood, according to police.

At about 4:20 a.m. July 9, officers responded to the area of South Broadway and East Floyd Avenue to interview the motorist, said Scot Allen, spokesman for Englewood police. The business is Old Steel Historical Firearms at 12 E. Girard Ave., just east of Broadway, Allen said.

The suspects — one of whom reportedly fired at the motorist who drove past — did not enter the shop, and the motorist was not injured and was able to drive away from the scene, Allen said.

The suspects have not been located as of about 11 a.m. July 9, and the incident is under investigation, Allen said.
