Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Man shot by driver in white Hummer near 35th and Clarke was 'unintended target'
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's a Facebook fallout that nearly turned deadly over the holidays, and now Milwaukee Crime Stoppers needs your help to find the shooter.
Milwaukee police say two days before Christmas, near 35th and Clarke, a 24-year-old man says he left his house and noticed a white Hummer following him.
The man said the driver started yelling at him about an argument on Facebook. The victim said he didn't know what the man was talking about and kept walking. That's when the driver fired one gunshot and drove off; the bullet hit the 24-year-old in the leg.
Detectives have surveillance video but they need your help identifying whose car it is.
"Black front bumper, black after market rims. It looks like it had a Chicago Bears tire cover on the rear. So kind of distinct," said Captain Craig Sarnow, with the Milwaukee Police Department. "There aren't any indications that the victim was doing anything he wasn't supposed to be doing. It looks like he was the unintended target of someone else's beef."
