Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Police are investigating a report of gunfire. It happened about 8 pm, Thursday, in the 1600-block of Sheffield Road.

When officers arrived, they found multiple rounds had been fired into a home where several people were, including children. No one was hurt.

An initial investigation suggests this wasn’t a random act. Anyone with pertinent information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Tipsters are always 100% completely anonymous.

All tips submitted to Crime Stoppers are electronically stripped of any personally identifying information and processed by a third-party answering service, not law enforcement.

Cash rewards up to $1,000 are paid for information leading to an arrest. Tipsters will never be asked their name and are given a secret code number to use when checking on a possible reward.
