“Fireworks, Loud Banging” Unusually High Number of Suspicious Noises Reported in Palatine, Inverness and Arlington Heights

Palatine police, Inverness police, and Arlington Heights police responded starting about 9:45 PM Sunday to an unusually high number of noise complaints. Police responded to a large number of callers reporting banging on the roof, banging on the back of the house, fireworks and shots fired.

At least one police officer reported hearing the noise, and reported the noise was “weather-related”.

No confirmation, but its possible fireworks were launched and coincidentally ice may have been falling or breaking branches at some locations from last night’s freezing rain. Police also confirmed seeing an aerial burst of fireworks earlier in the evening.
