Northern Illinois University and Dekalb police are looking into an apparent shooting incident early Sunday in an off-campus neighborhood. The Dekalb Chronicle reports NIU police posted a safety bulletin early Sunday  of shots fired around 2:30am near the intersection of Locust and John Streets.

An investigation and interviews are underway and DeKalb Police have added extra patrols in the area.

Police are asking the public to stay clear of the area. If they have information regarding the incident, they should contact Dekalb or NIU police.
