Weapons Violation

Incident Date

09/26/2017 - 7:05 PM


N. Sherman Ave. (1400 block Trailsway)


Male, black, 5'7", 20's, dark complexion, wearing a black hoodie with a gold or silver design on front.


 Many people, including children, were outside last evening in the 1400 block of Trailsway, when a man – who was mumbling loudly - caught the attention of many. He paused as he walked down the street as he made a discernible statement: "Ya'll don't know who you're messing with, I'm from Mil!" Onlookers thought that meant the man was from Milwaukee. He reached into his waistband, pulled out a handgun, and fired it into the air. A couple of teenagers picked up the spent shell casing and turned it over to responding police officers. No suspect was located.
