Beloit police responded to a shots fired call around midnight today in the area of Dewey and Summit avenues. A vehicle was struck multiple times by gunfire while it was driving away from the area, and the driver lost control of the vehicle, struck a light pole, and then left the scene prior to arrival. We do not have any reports of a gunshot wound victim from this incident. This incident remains under investigation.


Additionally, we received a report of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at 11pm Monday, June 1, in the 900 block of Keeler Avenue. The individual involved was placing his gun in his back pocket when the handgun discharged, striking the individual in his thigh. That individual involved, Henry Lathan, 48, was arrested for felon in possession of a firearm, endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. He was treated and released for his injury.
