Shooting incident, home invasion Saturday afternoon

Home invasion took place in apartment complex across from Barlow School.

Now known as Michael Manor, complex came under new ownership
as a result of Connolly Properties bankruptcy.
Plainfield police converged on an apartment in the Michael Manor complex in the 800-block of East Front Street late Saturday afternoon, after reports a gunman had shot up the unit.

I am told police are investigating whether the incident was spurred by a confrontation on Friday between two young men in the area. On Saturday the gunman supposedly saw the other man standing on the front steps of the apartment unit and fired at him.

The intended victim ran inside the occupied apartment and was followed by the gunman who fired several shots, one of them into a TV, and then fled.

No one was injured and police are still looking for the gunman.

The complex, now known as Michael Manor, came under new ownership as a result of the spectacular bankruptcy of once high-flying Connolly Properties.

I guess the mayor will call for another emergency, look out another 25,000 plus money for food might go missing.
