’It’s dangerous: ’ Drivers react to Monday’s I-43 shooting

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The shooting on I-43 Monday night was a scary reminder for those who drive on the interstate and those who live next to it. 

I-43 southbound was shut down at Atkinson Avenue as part of the investigation.

Authorities say a man who was shot drove to McDonalds at 9th and North Avenue, and first responders took him to a hospital for treatment.

"It’s dangerous for other people to shoot down on the highway, because it’s dangerous not only for the one that’s driving, but for the other people that’s driving on the highway, you know one mistake and everybody is in a collision," said Demorro Hall. 

"It’s to the point where I worry if I cut someone off one of my kids is gonna get shot and killed," added Maggie Kaddatz. 

In the last few years, there have been at least five shootings on the stretch of I-43 from the Marquette Interchange to Capitol, and a couple more traffic stopping incidents where there were reports of shots fired, but no evidence of that found. 

"I didn’t hear the shots, but when I looked out, I seen all of the traffic, all of the police out," said Al G. Pahram, who lives near the scene of Monday's shooting. "The shooting is kind of scary."
