NOW: Stray bullet enters 6th floor window of Water Street apartment building


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A stray bullet went through a sixth-floor window of The North End apartments located on Water Street, according to police and property management.

The incident occurred just after 2 a.m. on June 20, hours after a watch party for the Bucks' Game Seven against the Brooklyn Nets concluded at the Deer District, less than a mile away.

No one was hurt and police say no arrests have been made.

It is one of several violent incidents that has occurred in the area in and around Water Street in recent weeks that has drawn concern from area residents and businesses and attention from police.

In an email obtained by CBS 58 sent to residents of the Vignette building of the North End apartments, the property manager wrote security will continue to randomly patrol the area during overnight hours.

The property manager also added they met with police to reiterate the need for increased patrols and presence in the area because of the increased activity.

"I was quite honestly shocked," Sara Nonn, a resident of the building told CBS 58. "I live in this building and I just thought it was from partying so to be honest, when I first read [the email] I was a little scared for my safety so I'm hoping that there's more police presence here to hopefully prevent a stray bullet from entering any of the apartments again."

Milwaukee police will be hosting a crime and safety meeting on July 1 at 5:30 p.m. regarding the increase in activity around Water Street.

The meeting will be at Diercks Hall on the MSOE campus. Officers and other officials will be in attendance to speak on the matter and answer questions.
