Probe underway after bullet holes found on front of Urbana Middle School

URBANA — An employee found damage at Urbana Middle School on Sunday, apparently from gunfire.

An Urbana police report said police were sent to the 1200 block of South Vine Street just after 1 a.m. Sunday for reports of shots that had been heard by several people.

Police could find no one responsible and no damage at the time of the call.

However, about 4:45 p.m. Sunday, a school employee found three bullet holes in the front of the middle school on the east side of the building at 1201 S. Vine St. and reported the damage to police.

A Champaign man who was driving in the area around the time the shots were fired was stopped and found to have an open bottle of alcohol. He was arrested for that and on an outstanding McLean County warrant but was not linked to the shots fired, police said.
