Video: Shooting at Milwaukee Journal Sentinel building

A report says that someone working outside the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel building was shot and hurt Thursday afternoon.

A 30-year-old window washer was the victim. Police say that spmeone in a passing vehicle was the suspect, and someone in another vehicle was the target of the shooting - not the victim or anyone inside the Journal Sentinel.

A tweet by Journal Sentinel photographer Mike De Sisti says that someone fired shots into the building on the corner of North 4th and West State Streets. An Associated Press reporter says that the shooting happened at about 1:30 p.m. Glass was shattered at a window facing State Street on the north facade of the building.

According to De Sisti, the victim was conscious when being taken to the hospital.

His video shows a still pic of the scene, potentially with the suspect vehicle involved.

"There were police and firemen coming from every angle, bicycle policemen. Crime scene tape was just going up on the corner of 3rd and State," eyewitness Mike Sirna described to WTMJ's Melissa Barclay.

"Several (policemen) were running a little bit but there were others that were there that were closing off the street as much as possible."

The man, who was shot in the chest, ran into the building where employees gave first aid and called 911. Paramedics arrived shortly afterward.

His co-worker said the man worked for Al's Window Cleaning.
