Shots Fired @ St. Louis and Wrightwood This Morning

I received two comments on this one, which makes it worthy of a post. Allegedly, there were gunshots around 3 this morning near St. Louis and Wrightwood. Here's what the two anonymous commentors said.

Comment 1: "I live at N. St. Louis and Wrightwood. I heard 3 shots total last night around 2:45am. Any info on this? It was pretty terrifying.

Comment 2: "Did anyone hear shots fired around 3:00 AM this morning somewhere within listening distance of Kimball and Wrightwood? Two loud bangs woke me up, but they didn't sound like they were in my immediate vicinity. (If the police came, I'd already fallen back asleep before them. Neighborhood watch FAIL.)"

If you saw or heard anything, or have any information, please, feel free to comment.

UPDATE, 2/1/10: I received yet another comment about shots fired in the area. Two loud pops heard at about 2:45 at about Wrightwood and Sawyer. Two more loud pops heard twenty minutes later.

Thank you for your information. This situation sounds very serious. With all the reports I've been getting, I'm surprised nobody got shot.
