Bullets Fired At Home Of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy


The Chicago home of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy was hit by bullets early Tuesday.

According to police, the 52-year-old musician and his wife Susan were in their Old Irving Park home when they heard seven gunshots shortly after 2 a.m.

“A bullet went through the storm door to our balcony and lodged in the wooden door,” Susan shared in a Facebook post, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “In the light of day today, Jeff found 7 shell casings outside.”

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielimi told the Chicago Tribune that officers found what “appeared to be bullet holes” in an upper balcony and a glass door.

“There’s no indication that he was targeted, but detectives are going through that,’’ Guglielmi said.

No one was injured.

According to the Chicago Tribune, more than 2,482 people have been shot in Chicago this year.
