Racine Police Department investigator Rick Toeller said the call came in at 11:11 a.m. Sunday for a report of a man shot at the corner of 6th and Jones Streets.
The man was apparently going to see a friend of his, and he was shot. A woman named Priscilla told Racine County Eye that her friend was the one injured, and he was in surgery Sunday afternoon at Wheaton Franciscan St. Mary’s.
Police do have a suspect in custody, and they do not believe this was gang-related but stemmed from family trouble. The investigation is on-going.
We will update this story as details become available.
