The second occurred at a housing complex on South 7th Street when police say someone in a blue Subaru Legacy drove by and fired shots at a group of people standing outside, striking and injuring one person.

However, homicides by gunshot in the East Precinct are up about 33% and property damage from shots fired is up about 86% from this time last year.
