Police: Shot fired by burglar at Wauwatosa apartment complex, nobody hurt

Police scene at 75th and Center, Wauwatosa

WAUWATOSA — Wauwatosa police are investigating a burglary in which a gunshot was fired near 75th Street and Center Street on Wednesday, March 11.

Police tell FOX6 News a resident of an apartment building came home — and found two people in an apartment. One fired a round at the resident — but missed. The resident was not hurt.

“This is real unusual for Wauwatosa,” Porscha Burks, who lives in the area, said. “This neighborhood is quiet, there’s no crime over here…All this is quite a surprise.”

Officers say the two individuals fled in a vehicle — and nearby schools were alerted to the investigation.
