Suspect in custody in downtown Milwaukee shooting

December 1, 2016

MILWAUKEE Police have arrested a man suspected of firing several gunshots at a couple in downtown Milwaukee.

Officers blocked off streets near the Milwaukee County Courthouse Wednesday morning as they investigated the shooting. No one was injured. A parked unoccupied vehicle was struck by the gunfire.

Police say the 45-year-old suspect and the 27-year-old man and 24-year-old woman who were targeted know each other. Authorities say the shooting apparently was the result of a dispute in a criminal court case.
