— Neenah Police Department on Facebook
A post on the Neenah police department’s Facebook page Saturday morning reported shots had been fired.
People who live within a quarter-mile radius of the shooting area were told to shelter in place and avoid windows.
The first alert on Facebook from Neenah Police Department at 10:15 a.m. advised local residents as follows …
“Neenah PD is monitoring a high risk incident in the 200 Blk of Main St. There has been a report of at least one possible shot fired. We are working to make sure everyone in the area is safe. Please avoid the Main St. area between Downtown and the Bridge.”
Apparently the offender had sold a motorcycle. The new owner had brought the motorcycle in for repair, but the former owner decided he wanted the motorcycle back. That’s when a dispute developed and shots were fired.
Neenah is about 85 miles northwest of Milwaukee.
