MILWAUKEE -- A 30-year-old window washer was shot and wounded while working outside the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel building in downtown Milwaukee on Thursday, September 7th.
Milwaukee police say the shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. The victim was shot in the chest and ran into the building -- where employees gave first aid and called 911.
"I'm working at the Performing Arts Center on the Riverwalk on the east side of the river. I heard four loud explosions. I thought maybe something fell over at the new arena or some kind of construction accident, so I went walking towards the noise. I came up to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel building on State Street and saw a shattered window," said Cody Faul, a witness.
The man was conscious as paramedics loaded him into the ambulance. His co-worker said the men worked for Al's Window Cleaning.
Officials said the shooting suspect was in a passing vehicle.
The investigation has initially revealed that another vehicle was the intended target in this shooting -- and not the employee or the Journal Sentinel building.
MPD continues to investigate and seek the suspect and vehicle.
