GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – A 26-year-old man has been taken into custody after turning himself into police in connection with a Green Bay shooting that sent another man to the hospital.
According to Green Bay Police, officers were notified of a shooting on Friday, May 22, at around 11 p.m. on South Oakland Avenue near Seymour Park. During the incident, authorities say an individual was shot in the leg and sustained a serious injury resulting in hospitalization.
On Wednesday morning, Green Bay Police say they arrested the suspect, 26-year-old Muhammad Rahem Hoskins, after he turned himself at the GBPD Headquarters.
Investigators worked over the Memorial Day weekend to piece together the events that lead to the shooting. Before Hoskins turned himself in, officers and investigators served a search warrant in the 500 block of 12th Avenue, looking for Hoskins. He was not at the location at the time of the search.
Hoskins is now being held at the Brown County Jail and is expected to have a preliminary hearing later this week. Investigators have recommended charges of attempted first-degree homicide, recklessly endangering safety, and felon in possession of a firearm.
“The message is clear-If you commit a crime with a firearm in Green Bay we will hunt you down and arrest you,” said Police Chief Andrew Smith. “Our officers and detectives are relentless in the pursuit of violent lawbreakers-you are going to be held to account for the things you’ve done.”
