Gunshots allegedly fired near University Terrace

| Senior News Editor

University City police are investigating about 10 gunshots allegedly fired by the corner of Interdrive and Clemens Avenue Sunday evening.

Police would not comment on the investigation, but nearby residents said the shots were fired in two bursts just before 9 p.m.

Several University City officers were searching the alley between Westgate Avenue and Interdrive with flashlights until about 11:10 p.m.

“We couldn’t confirm there were gunshots, but I don’t know what else they could be. That was the first and only thing that came to my mind,” senior Jake Lichtenfeld, who lives on the 700 block of Interdrive, said. “I didn’t hear any screaming or voices or anything. We were watching ‘Breaking Bad.’”

“It’s an open investigation,” Sergeant Shawn Whitley of the University City Police Department said.
