Resident reacts to shelter-in-place order amid police situation in Caledonia

An urgent call for backup went out Wednesday as law enforcement responded to a situation at Cliffside Park in Caledonia.

The Racine County Sheriff’s Office issued an emergency alert directing people nearby to stay indoors and away from windows.

A TMJ4 photojournalist was outside the perimeter when he heard what sounded like half a dozen gunshots.

One woman told TMJ4 that she was in her yard when law enforcement approached her.

“Came up to me and told me that there was somebody in the back area of the park. That they were looking for and that I should go in the house that it might be dangerous to be outside,” neighbor Sharon Pittsley said. “I just couldn’t believe it. This is way out in the country here. It’s usually pretty quiet here.”
