Racine police continue to search for two men residents say had guns Friday morning near the intersection of Spring Street and Memorial Drive.
Calls came into dispatch around 11:30 a.m. Friday reporting two men with guns, according to a story from The Journal Times.
One man was described as 5’4″ tall with a thin build and wearing an orange sweatshirt. The second man was taller, about 5’10”, thin and wearing a black hoodie. Both were described as black males.
By 12:15 p.m., officers had streets blocked off, and neighboring agencies – including K9 units – were assisting in the search, our friends at Racine Uncovered posted.
Shots fired calls are taken very seriously, RPD Sgt. Jessie Metoyer told the newspaper. She also said there’s no way to know if the men possessed the firearms illegally, but officers were concerned since it appeared the men had fled.
After about an hour, roadways were re-opened, but as of Friday night police didn’t have anyone in custody.
Anyone with information about this incident can leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-888-636-9330, web: http://racine.crimestoppersweb.com, or text message: RACS to 274637(crimes).
