Green Bay Eastside Apartment Building Riddled With Bullet Holes


Investigators are searching for answers about what they call an extremely dangerous shooting on the Green Bay's eastside. Officers say residents of an apartment complex in the 900 block of Bellevue street woke up this morning to find bullet holes in their walls.

In a Green Bay Eastside neighborhood nine bullet holes in the side of an apartment building now haunt the people who live there, but just on the other side of the wall full of bullet holes is a family home, and evidence at least one bullet made it through the wall leaving its mark in a cereal box in the kitchen.

This wasn't discovered until about 9 a.m. Monday. Neighbors say the crime happened overnight at about 1 a.m.

"I heard a shot and I came to see the window, but I heard a song of shots like boom, boom like 5 or 6 shots, but I'm scared to go to bed again," said Hugo Lopez, who lives right next to the apartment building that was shot at.

Investigators are calling this incident a random shooting. Police say no one called to report the gunfire right after it happened and some neighbors near Amy Street and Bellevue Street say they thought the loud bangs were fireworks, but not all of them agree.

“I know these were shots, not fireworks, I know shots. I'm scared for my kids and my family,” said Lopez.

Investigators are trying to track down leads even though they were called to the scene eight hours after the shooting. Law enforcement leaders say they wish someone would've called right after they heard the bangs.

"In this case people thought, oh… well do I want to bother the police? You are not bothering us. We get paid to be out there, we get paid to investigate these incidents and like I said, the sooner we can get to them, the sooner we can get them solved," said Green Bay Police Captain Bill Galvin.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to please call police.
