A shooter opened fireplace on Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy’s Chicago dwelling — spraying it with bullets and abandoning a pile of shell casings, in keeping with a report Wednesday.
The 52-year-old jam band rocker and his household awoke to the sound of gunfire round 2 a.m. Tuesday and found the gunman had blasted his balcony door, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
His spouse, Susan Miller-Tweedy, mentioned she heard as much as 10 gunshots, the paper reported.
“You understand how each time you hear loud pops you suppose … was that fireworks or gunshots? Effectively, when it’s actually gunfire there’s zero query about it,” Miller-Tweedy wrote on Fb, in keeping with the outlet.
“A bullet went by means of the storm door to our balcony and lodged within the wood door,” she mentioned. “Within the gentle of day in the present day [Tuesday], Jeff discovered seven shell casings outdoors.”
Reached by telephone Wednesday, Jeff Tweedy declined to remark, the paper reported.
Tweedy’s son, Spencer, told WBBM radio the assault was “fairly scary,” however he didn’t imagine the household had been focused.
No accidents have been reported.
