GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay police say a man showed up at Aurora BayCare Medical Center on the far east side of the city at the same time officers were investigating a report of a shooting in a neighborhood near downtown.

The initial call reported shots fired on the 600-block of S. Irwin Ave. at 1:22 P.M., but police found a car with bullet holes and determined the shooting happened on the 600-block of S. Baird St.

Police say they found a female person of interest -- they aren’t specifying her age -- and learned there may be two other people who ran away. No descriptions were available. Officers were searching the neighborhood with the help of a K9 unit and eventually reopened the streets to traffic.

The man with the gunshot wound is expected to recover. Detectives are interviewing witnesses to confirm whether he was a victim of the shots fired on Baird Street.

At last word, police didn’t know a motive for the shooting.
