Mar. 29—A Lincoln Park city official offered a few details about a shooting incident that took place in the area of University Ave. and Lafayette Blvd.

According to James Krizan, city manager, police rushed to the area after the caller saw children trying to get away from what appeared to be a dog allegedly prepared to attack.

The incident occurred on March 26.

Lincoln Park police did not return numerous calls for comment on the incident.

Krizan said it is his understanding that the caller told police children were trapped on top of a vehicle trying to avoid being bitten by the dog.

Reports of shots being fired soon followed.

Krizan said it was the caller who eventually shot the dog.

"The dog is expected to survive," Krizan said. "This was not a stray dog. It seems the dog got loose. The owner was found."

None of the children were hurt.
