Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy's home shot up in Chicago

A shooter opened fire on Wilco lead singer Jeff Tweedy's Chicago home - spraying it with bullets and leaving behind a pile of shell casings, according to a report Wednesday.

Jeff Tweedy of Wilco performs throughout Pitchfork Music Competition 2015 at Union Park on July 17, 2015 in Chicago, Unwell.

Gunshots hit the family's home, located on the Northwest Side, shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday. "Jeff found 7 shell casings outside".

"Do you know that every time you hear loud noises do you think... were they fireworks or shots?"

The Sun-Times said Jeff Tweedy declined to comment on the shooting. "Effectively, when it's actually gunfire there's zero query about it", Miller-Tweedy wrote on Fb, in keeping with the outlet.

She added that "there were 7 to 10 shots fired at what sounded like right at our house".

A slug experienced the tempest entryway to our overhang and held up in the wooden entryway, she said.

The musician's wife, Susan Tweedy, shared the news on Facebook, per the Chicago Sun Times.

Tweedy's son, Spencer, told WBBM-AM 780 radio the situation was "pretty scary" but he did not believe the family was targeted.
