GRANT COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin law enforcement authorities are looking for a pickup which was involved in a shooting Thursday afternoon on Wisconsin Highway 61 between Dickeyville and Potosi.

A mother and her four children in an SUV weren’t hurt when someone in that pickup shot their vehicle as it passed. It happened about 5:30 p.m.

The 40 year old woman from Lancaster says she saw the barrel of a rifle come out of the driver’s side window and heard a shot. The women pulled over, the pickup drove away and a bullet hole was found in the driver’s side door of the SUV. The bullet was recovered.

The Grant County Sheriff’s office says it doesn’t appear the woman was the target. The children riding in the SUV were age six, 10, 13 and 16.
