Schaumburg police are investigating a report that a gun was displayed by an occupant of a white car near the intersection of Schaumburg and Barrington roads Wednesday afternoon.

The initial report came in as one of shots fired near a business at the intersection, but responding officers found no evidence or witnesses confirming that, police Sgt. John Nebl said.

There were no injuries or damage at the scene, he added.

Witnesses said a gun was displayed by one of three male occupants of a vehicle just before 2 p.m. Later in the afternoon, officers found an unoccupied vehicle that may have been the one described, Nebl said.

As of early Wednesday evening, no one was in custody and police continued their search for suspects and information, Nebl said.
