West Milwaukee police investigate shootout caught on camera

WEST MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- West Milwaukee police are investigating a shooting incident that occurred near 38th and Greenfield on Wednesday evening, May 1st. It was all captured by a surveillance camera.

According to officials, police received reports of shots fired around 6 p.m. Wednesday.

"I heard 'Boom! Boom! Boom!' And I thought, 'My God!' That sounds like gunshots!" said Mary Cardinal. "So I got up, and I looked out the window, and I didn`t see anybody, or anything, but I could see a red car, down the street."

That car shows up in surveillance video from a camera outside of New Elbow Room bar next door. The video shows the car back up, the driver gets out and is holding a gun in his right hand. Both the driver and another person on the sidewalk take cover as the driver appears to return fire. As the driver runs away, the person on the sidewalk gets into the car and drives off.

"I'm starting to watch the film and I just couldn't believe what I`m seeing, here. You know? It's like watching television," said Greg Pokorny, owner of New Elbow Room bar.

Pokorny says he's owned his bar for just shy of 21 years. His parking lot borders the building next door to where he believes we're able to see the other people involved in the shooting.

"Sometimes there`s some, unsavory people in and outta there. You know, and I don't know if they live there, or if they're just visiting, or relatives, or what. But, some shouting matches once in a while," said Pokorny.

West Milwaukee police say at least one unidentified person was hurt in the shooting. Several others were taken into custody for questioning -- but there are no arrests in the case.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the West Milwaukee Police Department at 414-645-2151.
