Road rage shooting in front of a Racine County Kwik Trip leaves one man shot in both legs

MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A man suffered gunshot wounds to both of his legs following a road rage shooting in Racine County on Tuesday night.

Mount Pleasant police and the Racine County Sherriff's Dept. responded to the Kwik Trip on East Frontage Rd. in the Village of Mount Pleasant. The response came close to 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29 after receiving word of shots being fired.

The call was transferred from Kenosha, claiming to have heard approximately ten shots. When officials arrived on-scene and conducted a search of the area, they found around 15 spent shell 9mm casings in front of the Kwik Trip. They also discovered that a vehicle in Racine Toyota's dealership lot and the window at the nearby Burger King also were struck.

Investigation showed that the suspect in the incident pulled a handgun and began shooting toward the 28-year-old victim from Kenosha. He was last reported to be in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries at Froedert Pleasant Prairie Hospital.

Officials believe that the incident was an isolated road rage incident, not a situation that presents any danger to the general public.

No suspect is yet in custody, so people with information about the shooting are asked to call (262) 884-0454.
