A 28-year-old Appleton man is in custody for his alleged role in a shooting on the 2900 block of N. Union Street Tuesday, and police are also questioning a Green Bay man in connection with that shooting. 

The Appleton Police Department is requesting the Appleton man be charged with one count of Attempted 1st Degree Homicide and five counts of 1st Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety.

Multiple rounds were fired into the apartment building and outside of the building during Tuesday’s incident.

A 35-year-old Manitowoc man is in the hospital with a lower body gunshot wound from the incident, police said.

Just after 1 p.m., police responded to an apartment building on N. Union Street. Police found the victim in a parking area outside building. 

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

Based on witness information, officers were able to quickly identify a suspect and found him at Riverside Cemetery with a sibling, according to police.

Police are continuing their investigation by interviewing the Appleton man and witnesses at the apartment complex. 

They have not determined a motive yet for the shooting.

Area schools were on lockdown while police searched for the suspect, but that was lifted around 2:30 p.m. and schools were dismissed at their usual time.
