MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man is now facing charges after police responded to a report of shots fired near E. Capital Dr. and Estabrook Pkwy Wednesday.

Geoffrey Graff appeared in court on Saturday on felony charges of 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety and possession of a short-barreled shotgun. His cash bail was set at $20,000.

This comes after the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, MPD, Shorewood Police Department and the UWM Police Department responded to a report of shots fired, and discovered an underground shelter associated with Graff.

If the bail is posted, Graff will be released pending the resolution of the case. A no-contact order will be issued preventing Graff from having any contact with the Milwaukee Area Technical College and Estabrook Park. This order would limit Graff from entering a geographic region bounded on the west by N. Holton Street, on the east by N. Wilson Street (the eastern border of Estabrook Park), the north by Hampton Avenue and on the south by Capitol Drive.

The conditions of Graff's release also prevent him from possessing firearms.

A preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday, Dec. 3.
