A YouTube video from a dashcam may have captured a daytime shooting in Albany Park on Saturday afternoon.

Posted by YouTube user albowrx, the video captures a man firing several shots at someone, then getting into what appears to be an older model Honda Accord and speeding off.

Chicago Police said shots were exchanged by two people at 3:12 p.m. in the 4800 block of North Kenneth Avenue on Saturday. Both shooters were men, police said, and no injuries were reported.

Some of the bullets hit a nearby residence, according to police. No one was in custody on Monday.

Police wouldn’t confirm whether the YouTube video is the Kenneth Avenue shooting, although a time stamp on the video appears to show the same date. A Google street view also appears to confirm the location of the shooting, which is on the corner of Gunnison Street and Kenneth Avenue.

In the video, a woman is seeing carrying trash around a building. Then a man wearing a dark T-shirt and cap is seen in the middle of the street, next to a vehicle.

Another man in a white T-shirt, who looks younger, also appears in the street. The older man takes out a gun and fires several shots before getting into the car, which speeds away. The young man is seen running quickly as soon as shots are fired.

According to the YouTube user, the car was a 2002 or older Honda Accord.

In a separate shooting Saturday in Albany Park, a 27-year-old man was found shot in the face in the 4700 block of North Albany at 11:45 p.m.

Daniel Rivera, who lived in the 7200 block of North Damen, was dead at the scene.

From Friday evening to Monday afternoon, 12 people have been killed and 43 injured in shootings this Memorial Day weekend.
