Racine Police have released more information on a suspect in a shooting that happened Sunday, according to a press release by Sgt. Al Days, of the Racine Police Department.

Tramerquae Massie, a 16-year-old Racine boy, is a person of interest in the shooting. Considered armed and dangerous, he is described as a black male, who is five-foot nine-inches tall and weighs 185 pounds.

A 52-year-old Racine man was shot at 12:26 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of Martin Luther King Drive, said Sgt. Al Days from the Racine Police Department. Shot twice, the man was taken to Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare-All Saints Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and then released from the hospital.

The man told police he was approached by the shooting suspect and two other people. The suspect shot at the man several times, but only struck him twice, Days said.

Racine Police learned about Massie’s identity after they stopped the two other boys that were with him at the time of the shooting. One of the boys had a semi-automatic pistol, but it was not the weapon used in the shooting.
