Incident at West Allis rooming house

WEST ALLIS — West Allis police arrested a suspect after a disturbance at a rooming house near 88th and Greenfield Ave. on Tuesday morning, April 5th.

A resident told FOX6 News that he heard police yelling at the suspect — and that the man allegedly threatened to shoot up the building.

West Allis police apparently advised area businesses and a school to go into lockdown as a precaution.

A poll worker at Wilson Elementary School (just a couple of blocks away) told FOX6 News that this incident did not disrupt anyone’s effort to vote.

There were no reports of injuries.

    So, the school was put on lockdown – but the public was allowed to come & go as usual, to vote. Kind of defeats the purpose of a lockdown, doesn’t it?
