Two victims were located from the shooting, one juvenile and one adult. Both victims were transported to local hospitals and were subsequently transferred to Milwaukee area hospitals due to serious injuries.

Unconfirmed reports from witnesses at the scene said a man jumped onto the back porch of the house and ran to the front of the house and opened fire. One person was reportedly shot in the face and the other was shot in the leg.

It remains an active and ongoing investigation and there were no suspects in custody, according to the police department.
