Someone fired a gun into the window of a school on the city's South Side while class was in session.The window is on the second floor of the Deneen School at 72nd and Wabash.

A class of fourth graders was using that room at the time.

The teacher moved the students to a different room.

"Children were not harmed. They were immediately removed, relocated to another classroom and remained there until the area was secure," said Monique Bond, CPS spokesperson.

Bond tells us the school was not the target and it appears to have been random gunfire.
