A man has been charged after a SWAT team responded to a report of gunfire on the Northwest Side.

Officers responded about 8:55 a.m. to the call of shots fired in the 3400 block of West Peterson, according to Chicago Police. A SWAT team was then called to clear the area, and nearby streets were temporarily closed as a precautionary measure.

Two people were initially held for questioning, and a weapon was recovered at the scene, police said. No injuries were reported.

Fares Odicho, 39, was ultimately charged with a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct, police said Monday.

Additional information was not released by police.
