Jeff Tweedy's family home on the northwest side of Chicago was reportedly struck by bullets on Tuesday (Nov. 26).

“You know how every time you hear loud pops you think ... was that fireworks or gunshots? Well, when it’s really gunfire there is zero question about it,” the musician's wife, Susan Miller Tweedy, wrote in a Facebook post according to The Chicago Sun Times, adding that “there were 7 to 10 shots fired at what sounded like right at our house.”

She continued to note that she called 911 twice, and then realized "a bullet went through the storm door to our balcony and lodged in the wooden door. In the light of day today [Tuesday], Jeff found 7 shell casings outside.”

According to WBBM-AM 780 radio, the Wilco frontman's son Spencer didn't believe that the shots were targeted.
