Man injured in shooting in Allouez

ALLOUEZ, Wis. - Brown County Deputies are investigating a shooting in Allouez. Police were called to the 2200 block of Libal Street for reports of shots fired outside a duplex.

When officials arrived they found a man shot in the neck inside his car. He is in the hospital in stable condition, deputies said.

The suspect, a 17-year-old man, fled the scene and was found with the help of Green Bay Police Department on Day Street in Green Bay, according to the sheriff's office.

The suspect has been booked into the Brown County jail on charges of attempted first degree intentional homicide.

"I feel pretty safe here. After last night not so much," said David Irish, Allouez resident.

Irish lives in the duplex next to where deputies say two men got into an argument over a girl at her house.

"To hear gunshots it's kind of crazy. Terrifying kind of, actually," said Irish.

Deputies believe the suspect meant to shoot the victim, and the shooting was related to a relationship dispute over a girl. She was present at the time of the shooting and she is a minor, deputies said.

"We're fortunate to live in Northeast Wisconsin and it's rare to have this type of incident occur and in this specific incident, it's our belief that it was targeted," said Chief Deputy Todd Delain. 

NBC26 is not naming the suspect until he's been formally charged. The investigation is ongoing.
