Police are looking for the gunman who shot and killed a 24-year-old Milwaukee in Menomonee Falls Friday. 

It happened near Pilgrim Road and Megal Drive. Police said there was a dispute between two people who knew each other. It started on the road, and officers later found the body on Pilgrim Road. 

“There has been some type of dispute between two drivers who apparently knew each other to some degree. That dispute ended up in a shooting,” said Captain Jeff Knop of the Menomonee Falls Police Department. 

The suspect is at large, but law enforcement believes they know who the suspect is. 

The shooting occurred near the Harley Davidson Plant. It has people who regularly use the road worried.

“That’s scary,” said Sarah Mattick who uses the road every day to drop off her son with his grandparents. Her friend with her just missed passing by at the time of the shooting. 

“I thought about getting off here and taking Pilgrim up today and I’m glad I didn’t,” said Ryan Bardele.

The Northbound ramp at I-41 and Pilgrim is still closed. The Southbound ramp has since reopened.
