MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- I-43 north has reopened following a shots fired investigation Wednesday night, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

This is the second possible shooting on I-43 this week. It comes just two days after a 19-year-old was shot while driving on I-43, shutting down the freeway for more than two hours. 

In the last few years, there have been at least five shootings on I-43 from the Marquette Interchange to Capitol. There were also a handful of calls for shots fired, but no evidence was found.

This is a developing story. CBS 58 will provide updates as they become available.
