Man arrested after shots fired in Fond du Lac area

NORTH FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A 19-year-old Fond du Lac County man is facing several charges related to shooting his gun off.

During a traffic stop in North Fond du Lac Wednesday, the man was taken into custody.

Authorities say it all started just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, when shots were reported outside a home on Glenwood Drive in the city of Fond du Lac. The suspect took off before police arrived.

Then, someone was seen firing a shot into the air on Florida Avenue in the Village of North Fond du Lac. Authorities say the suspect in that case matched the description of the earlier shooter.

Police eventually found the suspect during a traffic stop at the intersection of Winnebago Street and Prospect Avenue in North Fond du Lac. He was taken into custody at gun point.

A 47-year-old North Fond du Lac man was also in the vehicle. He is the father of the 19-year-old and is not believed to have fired any shots.

No one was hurt in either shooting.
