Gunfire early Sunday morning rocked a section of the West Rogers Park neighborhood that has long been known as a quiet place to live. As CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reported, the bullets went flying in all directions on California Avenue between Rosemont and Granville avenues. Booze bottles and trash littered West Ridge Plaza on the west side of California Avenue on Sunday. The scene tells a story. The debris supports what neighbors describe as a party – with some perhaps drinking shots and then firing shots. “Like 30 rounds, like, ‘Ra-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!’” said Joe Pedro. That is what Pedro said woke him up around 6:30 a.m. Sunday. The gunfire startled other neighbors as well, including firefighters working at Engine Company 71 at 6239 N. California Ave. Bullet holes and evidence markers were seen at their building. A source told CBS 2 some Chicago Fire Department first responders were outside at the time and had to duck for cover.
