MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is increasing patrols on Interstate 43 after two separate shootings in a week.

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

The sheriff’s office called the shootings “thuggish” and interim Sheriff Richard Schmidt said in a statement Saturday that the perpetrators “will be tracked down and incarcerated!”

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.

No one has been arrested.
