Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Milwaukee firefighter shot while warming up vehicle
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's that time of year, where more and more thieves prey on the vulnerable. You go outside, turn on your car for a minute to let it warm up before going back out to leave. Last month, a Milwaukee firefighter did that and ended up getting shot.
A 26-year-old Milwaukee firefighter went out to warm his car. He ran in the house, returned a few minutes later and found someone in his car.
The firefighter got into a fight with the man but didn't realize the man had someone with him, and that person took out a gun, shot the firefighter in the leg and took off.
"We canvassed for witnesses and checked for video. Unlike other cases there was no ballistic evidence left behind and no arrests have been made, that's why we are here we need the public's help to help identify those two individuals that were involved in this case," said Captain Craig Sarnow, Milwaukee Police Department.
Police say there was a lot of snow on the ground at the time of the shooting and tried to track the suspects but couldn't.
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS. You can anonymously give information to help crack the case, and there's no way to trace the call.
You can also receive up to $1,000 in a cash reward.
