Police are investigating three calls of shots fired late Saturday and early Sunday in west suburban Aurora.

The first shooting happened about 11:30 p.m. Saturday in the 100 block of North Ohio Street, according to Aurora police.

When a dark colored four-door vehicle headed northbound on Ohio Street passed two men walking southbound, one of the men walking began to fire shots at the vehicle, police said. The two men ran and someone inside the vehicle returned fire.

No one was injured, but two homes were struck causing about $110 in damage, police said.

The two who were walking were described as black men, 18-25 years old, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot 10, 150-170 pounds and dressed in all black, police said. Police have not determined a motive in the shooting.

Two more shootings happened early Sunday, police said.

A home in the 100 block of North Kendall Street was hit by gunfire about midnight, police said. A dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Lincoln Town Car, was seen speeding away from the area.

Police responded to a call of shots fired about 2:10 a.m. in the 1100 block of Gates Street and found a vehicle with a bullet hole, worth about $500 in damage, parked around the corner, police said.

Police believe both shootings are gang-related, but do not know if they are related to each other.

Anyone with information on any of the shootings should call Aurora Police Investigators at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000. Callers to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and qualify for a cash reward of up to $5000 for information that leads to any arrests.
