Men with a gun reported at Milwaukee County Courthouse

Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputies are investigating reports of two men with a gun outside the Milwaukee County Courthouse.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin said someone at the courthouse reported the incident to a deputy, but further information was not available.

At about 11:30 a.m., according to a news release, someone told a sheriff’s deputy that two men on North Ninth Street might have had a gun. The Ninth Street entrance to the courthouse was closed briefly during a search for the subjects, who might have left the area in a white vehicle, according to the release.

McLaughlin said the courthouse was not locked down, and no shots were fired.

Courthouse access is not being restricted, she said.
