One hurt in overnight shooting in Green Bay

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay police say a man shot on Chicago Street late Thursday night was not a random victim.

Green Bay police investigate after a report of gunfire on Chicago St. The call came in late on the night of December 6th, 2018.

Police responded to calls about gunshots on Chicago St. between Roosevelt Street and Irwin Avenue, at about 11:30 p.m. That's just east of downtown Green Bay.

At about the same time, police were told a 22-year-old man with a gunshot wound came in to a local hospital. He was shot in the arm and the injury wasn't life-threatening.

Officers blocked off the road for more than four hours while they investigated and took pictures of evidence.

They confirm to Action 2 News they found shell casings and the shooting happened outside a home. At this point they don't believe anything -- or anyone -- else was struck.

Police believe the victim and the shooter know each other and this wasn't some random violence. Officers don't think the general public is in any danger.

Police have not released any information about a suspect.
