WAUWATOSA, Wis. - A worker at the Wauwatosa George Webb restaurant located at 122nd and North Avenue was shot and wounded early Sunday, Jan. 30.
Wauwatosa police say around 12:15 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a report of a shooting at the George Webb Restaurant. Preliminary information showed there was an argument between the employee and a group of customers. That escalated into a physical fight and culminated with the employee being shot.
"I’m surprised to hear that. Shocked, of course," said James Coomer, a frequent customer of the restaurant.
The 26-year-old worker was shot in the face, suffered serious injuries, and is recovering at a hospital. George Webb officials say the worker is in stable condition.
Dispatch recordings indicate the female suspect was wearing a camouflage-patterned jacket and pants – and carrying a silver handgun. Police have not released any information about the suspect or suspects. In fact, investigators are still trying to confirm what the argument was about. They say initial findings indicate this is an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public.
A statement from George Webb says, "…our thoughts and prayers are with the employee impacted by this incident."
"I guess you never know what’s going to happen," Coomer said.
The Wauwatosa Police Department is looking for additional witnesses and video evidence. If you can assist, you are urged to contact the Wauwatosa Police Investigative Division at 414-471-8430.
