Milwaukee Police says it is investigating after a bullet from a gun struck what an alderman said was a city-owned sanitation vehicle.
The incident happened at about 9:15 a.m. on North 19th Street just south of Locust Street.
“Thank God no one was struck by the gunfire, which I’m told entered the cab portion of the garbage truck,” said Alderman Bob Donovan in a statement.
“Whether directed at them or just random gunfire from the neighborhood, it is a sad state of affairs when city workers just trying to do their jobs in broad daylight are dodging real bullets! I ask that all city workers out in the field in Milwaukee be aware of their surroundings at all times and report anything suspicious to police.”
Police ask you to call them with information about the incident at 414-935-7360.
Alderman Donovan joined Wisconsin’s Afternoon News Tuesday to discuss the incident. Listen to the conversation above.
