IRVING PARK — The Irving Park home of Chicago musician Jeff Tweedy was hit by gunfire early Tuesday morning, police said.

At about 2 a.m., the Wilco frontman and his wife Susan Miller Tweedy heard several loud shots fired while they were inside their Irving Park home, according to police spokesperson Kellie Bartoli. No one was injured, Bartoli said, but Tweedy discovered doors were damaged by the gunfire.

“You know how every time you hear loud pops you think … was that fireworks or gunshots? Well, when it’s really gunfire there is zero question about it,” Miller Tweedy in a Facebook post according to the Sun-Times.

The couple heard between “7 and 10” gunshots, Miller Tweedy said.

The gunfire happened near Montrose and Keeler avenues. While shootings in the neighborhood are not commonplace, recently there have been several high-profile shootings in the area, possibly due to a gang war nearby. Residents are calling on the Chicago police department to increase patrols in the area.

Further details were not immediately available.
