Chicago police warn of shooter targeting Gold Coast high-rises

Police are warning Gold Coast residents after four instances of gunfire struck high-rises along Lake Shore Drive over the past month.

The most recent shooting happened Thursday morning in the 1100 block of North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police said in a community alert.

Three other shootings occurred the morning of Feb. 11 on the same block.

In each case, someone fired a handgun and struck windows or the outside of buildings, police said. No injuries were reported.
