MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a suspect in a freeway shooting last Friday.

The suspect is a 24-year-old Milwaukee man.

The shooting on Interstate 43 left one man injured shortly before 5 p.m. on Friday and caused traffic delays for several hours while authorities investigated. The shooting happened on southbound I-43 northwest of downtown Milwaukee.

It was the second shooing on the freeway in less than a week.

An earlier shooting Monday afternoon on northbound I-43 caused a car accident but no injuries. Detectives recovered 19 shell casings while investigating that shooting.

The sheriff’s office is increasing patrols on the interstate.
