Bullet lands in Gwen Moore’s home after shots fired
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A shooting on a Milwaukee street early Wednesday morning, January 22nd is now the subject of a federal investigation after at least one bullet ended up inside of the home of Congresswoman Gwen Moore.
It was enough to wake up neighbors in the area.
“We heard two shots, then it was like five — like it was automatic. The way it was shooting, it sounded like it was automatic,” said Larry Jackson.
Jackson lives across the street from Moore and says he heard the commotion, but never saw what happened.
“It just got quiet. We didn’t hear nothing else,” said Jackson. “I didn’t see any police, nothing out here.”
Moore’s press secretary, Staci Cox, tells FOX6 five shots were fired outside the Congresswoman’s home. Cox says one bullet ricocheted off of the house and landed inside the second floor of the residence in a bedroom.
Moore was not home at the time and Cox says the Congresswoman was not a target. Because shots were fired into a federal official’s home, it’s policy for Capitol Police in Washington, D.C. to investigate. FOX6 has learned the FBI may also get involved.
No one was injured during the incident. There are no suspects in custody at this time.
