KENOSHA, Wis. — A suspect is not in custody after a 35-year-old man was shot to death in what appears to be a targeted shooting Friday morning in Kenosha.
KPD said in a statement that officers were called to the area of 26th Street and 23rd Avenue around 7:13 a.m. for several reports of guns being fired.
There police officers found an unresponsive 35-year-old man suffering from the gunshot wounds. Officers and Kenosha Fire Dept. paramedics attempted live-saving measures but the man was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident.
The victim's identity will be released when family are notified of his death.
TMJ4's Katie Crowther reports a lot of sadness and confusion there, after what appears to be a very targeted shooting. The victim’s wife stood outside her home as police investigated Friday morning.
Two Kenosha buses were brought in to block the view of the victim, who was laying in the street.
A neighbor shared some cell phone video with TMJ4 News that showed a car parked near the victim’s house. When the victim left his house Friday morning, a man in the driver’s seat of the car got out, walked up to the victim and started shooting.
You can hear at least 15 gunshots, then the shooter got back in the car and took off.
Kenosha police say that shooter is not in custody.
As a precaution, from about 8:15 to 9:15 a.m., five Kenosha public schools in the area kept kids indoors and did not let anyone enter the schools. They were Bose, Grant, Harvey, and Jefferson elementary schools and Washington Middle School.
Anyone with information regarding this homicide is asked to contact the Kenosha Police Department Detective Bureau at 262-605-5203 or the Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers at 262-656-7333.
