DeKALB – Police are canvasing the area around 800 Pappas Drive, where DeKalb Police Cmdr. Bob Redel confirmed shell casings were found after a report of several shots being fired this afternoon.

He said video surveillance is being pulled from nearby businesses, such as Rosati’s Sports Pub, 930 Pappas Drive. A post on the police department’s Facebook page says the suspects are three or four dark-skinned men. It adds that North Annie Glidden Road and Hillcrest Drive should be avoided.
