Pasadena police responding to multiple reports of shots fired by residents in the area of Orange Grove Boulevard and Worcester Avenue found evidence of a shooting. But no victim.

Lt. Marcia Taglioretti said police were called at 10:54 p.m. by citizens reporting they heard four gunshots.

Officers did locate the scene of the shooting in the 700 block of Worcester Avenue, she said, where shell casings were collected.

Reports indicate the unidentified suspect stood in a driveway and fired multiple rounds from a handgun into the air, she said.

There were no injuries reported. Taglioretti said officers did not find any bullet strikes in cars or residences.

A nearby resident told Pasadena Now that “someone heard a man screaming right before the shots and right after.”

That resident remarked “it’s very unsettling and disturbing to hear gunshots.”

The suspect remains at large.
