Police released the 911 calls in that shooting:
The victim was taken to the hospital before being airlifted to a Milwaukee hospital for treatment. Most of the businesses were closed during the shooting, but some people who were staying nearby heard gunshots.
"I heard what I thought was a gunshot and then a little bit later tow more. Then 20 minutes later I heard sirens," said Brian, who witnessed the incident.
"Before that even happened, the streets were like a ghost town. I was shocked that anything like that could happen," said Shane Goff who saw the aftermath of the shooting.
Police believe it was an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public. The two suspects are black men in their late teens, early 20s. They have not yet confirmed whether they've made any arrests.
