A 53-year-old Village of Saukville man was charged with disorderly conduct for threatening to shoot people outside his residence on Sunday, April 22.

Police were dispatched to the 100 block of South Mill Street at 8:23 p.m. because a man was threatening his neighbors with a firearm. 

Police made contact with the 53-year-old and determined that the man and two other tenants got into a verbal altercation. The two other tenants left the scene but later returned.  

The 53-year-old man made comments about putting bullets in people’s heads and said someone is going to die tonight, the police report said. 

The man told officers that nothing happened because he had been sleeping and he didn’t know why the police were there.  

The man was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail. Charges for disorderly conduct are being requested through the Ozaukee County district attorney’s office.
