CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Champaign Police said that two people were hurt in a shooting that happened Thursday afternoon on Heritage Drive.
Officials confirmed that officers were dispatched to the area of Heritage and Clayton Boulevard at 2:20 p.m. on Thursday. They found two victims and had them taken to the hospital. Their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.
One woman who was in the area said she heard eight shots being fired in rapid succession. Neighbors said they were shocked to hear about it since it is a quiet neighborhood.
“We usually don’t see it in this far, but we’re seeing more and more of this over the years and it’s not uncommon to have windows open at night and listen to gunfire,” Chris McDonald said.
This is a developing story.
