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.
The freeway was shut down since shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday. Shortly after 9 p.m., the shutdown appeared to be lifted -- and traffic resumed on northbound I-43.
We are waiting for more information from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office. We hope to learn if anything was ever discovered.
