MILWAUKEE (AP) - Authorities are looking for whoever fired a gunshot that struck an ambulance responding to a call in Milwaukee.

Police say it happened Saturday night on the northwest side. The two EMTs inside the ambulance heard what they thought was a rock striking the vehicle. But when they arrived, they discovered that a bullet had hit it just above the driver’s window.

Teri Nitka, director of ambulance operations at Paratech Ambulance Services, says the EMTs were shaken up but OK.

Nitka says the company has reminded its employees to be extra vigilant and aware of scene safety.

Bell Ambulance has also put its paramedics on alert. Deputy Director Scott Mickelsen says it’s saddening and repulsive that someone would try to harm people who are trying to help people.
