Police were called to Chi Phi fraternity, 1510 N. Vine Ave., Tuesday afternoon after a report of someone breaking windows in the building.

When police arrived they met with a member who said he heard breaking glass while he was sitting in his second story room between 3:45 p.m. and 4 p.m. He told police he looked out the window when he heard the glass and saw a white Jeep Cherokee speeding away south on North Fremont Avenue.

When he went downstairs he found three broken windows in a front room and a brick on the floor.

The student told police he suspected the damage was done by members of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, 934 N. Campbell Ave. He said the two fraternities have had several disputes in the past and believes the windows were broken in retaliation.

Police drove through the Alpha Epsilon Pi parking lot but were unable to locate the vehicle described.

Police received a call Saturday from an unknown person who said members of Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., were shooting at the facilities management plant located next to the fraternity.

When police arrived they saw 15 to 20 fraternity members sitting in front of the Alpha Kappa Lambda house. One member was seen lying on the grass with a BB rifle. Police said the student appeared to be shooting at bottles set up next to the wall of the facilities management plant.

Police confiscated the rifle and told the fraternity's president about the violation. No damage was done to the wall of the facilities management plant.
