On Saturday, March 20, 2021 shortly after 1:00 am Sheboygan Police Officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of S 13th St for a report of gunshots. Officers checked the area and spoke with neighbors but were not initially able to determine an exact location or locate evidence.
Later in the day a witness reported finding a shell casing. Officers continued the investigation and identified a 29 year old Sheboygan man who admitted to discharging his firearm into the air. There is no evidence this was done to harm or frighten anyone, and no evidence that anyone was injured in the incident. He was charged with Endangering Safety by Use of a Dangerous Weapon.
