BROOKFIELD -- Officials say two people were shot in Brookfield on Sunday, October 25th -- and this is believed to have stemmed from a dispute between neighbors.
It happened around 4:30 p.m. near Edwards and Tulane.
A neighbor and witness told FOX6's Bret Lemoine that this shooting was sparked by a homeowner's bonfire.
The victims, who are both men, are expected to survive. A suspect is in custody. Police say that suspect was not shot.
According to the Brookfield Police Department, three neighbors were talking in a backyard and got into a dispute with a fourth neighbor, the suspect. At that time, the suspect went into his residence and then returned with handgun and began to shoot -- striking two people.
Both victims suffered gunshot wounds -- one neighbor was shot twice, the other neighbor was shot once.
Police say all three men involved are Brookfield residents in their 50s.
Neighbors tell FOX6 News a bonfire set one neighbor off.
"No one deserves that. They were hanging out in the backyard. The houses butt up against each other. They just were mouthing off," Ciro Gamino said.
"They were arguing and he snapped and pulled out a gun and started shooting," Don Gwinn said.
Those who live nearby say they heard as many as six gunshots.
"Seen one guy getting taken away in handcuffs. There was an ambulance here that took someone away," Renee Altmeyer said.
Both victims were taken to Froedtert Hospital for treatment, and they are expected to survive.
Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials had all lanes blocked on WIS 59 at Elm Grove Road in Brookfield as a result of this incident.
The lanes reopened to traffic around 6:15 p.m.
