MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Police are looking for a suspect who shot at a vehicle Saturday evening near the UW-Milwaukee campus.

It happened just before 7 p.m. Saturday in the 2500 block of N. Cramer Street.

According to Milwaukee Police, an unknown suspect "intentionally fired a black hand gun in the direction of a vehicle" after an argument with a driver in another vehicle.

A witness tells TODAY'S TMJ4 the argument was over a parking spot.

"To find out that it was a gunshot because we feel pretty safe here," said Nikki Rynders who lives nearby. "We've lived here for a year and a half now and we hear fireworks randomly and never really think of gunshots in our neighborhood."

A witness told police the suspect was a white male in his 20's, 5'8, 180 lbs, wearing a black t-shirt with a blue work vest and khaki pants. Police were unable to locate his vehicle.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call police.
