A SWAT team was called after gunshots were fired shortly before noon Monday in the Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

Police were called at 11:57 a.m. for reports of shots fired at a building in the 1900 block of North Cicero, according to Chicago police.

At 1:19 p.m., Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said there were “no known threats to the public or community.”

About five hours later, a SWAT team entered the building and found multiple dogs, police said. Chicago Animal Care and Control was then notified and the building was cleared.

No one was deemed shot and no suspects were in custody as of Wednesday morning.
