As reported by a citizen:

Last night between 10:00 and 10:30 pm in the 800 block of East Jefferson – around 10 gun shots.  Police and an ambulance were on the scene in minutes.  Nothing has been reported by any local media.

I have asked the Bloomington Police Department for details.  If they respond, I will update the post.

Are gun shots in a neighborhood not important enough to report?  I can see all incidents not being reported on the south-side of Chicago, but Bloomington?  It must be terrifying to hear gunshots in your street!
