MILWAUKEE -- A stretch of northbound I-43 through the Marquette Interchange reopened to traffic shortly after 9 p.m. on Wednesday evening, Oct. 16. This, after being shut down because of a report of shots fired on the freeway.

At least five Milwaukee County sheriff's deputies spent roughly two hours walking the ramp headed northbound on I-43 through the interchange -- searching for any evidence of that reported shooting. They covered a lot of ground -- beginning on the high rise bridge and eventually walking past Highland Avenue.

We are waiting for more information from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office. We hope to learn if anything was ever discovered.
