Shorewood Police are investigating a shooting that took place at the Metro Market just before 7 p.m. Saturday.

Once on scene, officers learned that two male subjects got into a fight during which one of the men fired one shot, hitting the other man in the arm. The man who was shot was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The man who fired the gun fled the scene, but was later taken into custody after a short pursuit with police.

A TMJ4 crew on scene spoke to family members of the victim who say that the victim and suspect are cousins. They don't know what caused the fight to break out.

Carissa Schneider is a Shorewood resident who was eating dinner across the street when the incident took place.

"I think it's really scary, especially with what's been going on just in Milwaukee as a whole — on Brady street and Water street and now so close," said Schneider. "I’ve never been scared to go grocery shopping and that’s the place I go to get my groceries so its really scary."

There is no longer a threat to the public and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this incident should contact the Shorewood Police Department at 414-847-2610.
