One man has been arrested after gunfire on South 4th Street on Wednesday...while a second man is still being sought by La Crosse police.
The gunfire happened outside an apartment building on the 13-hundred block of South 4th, shortly after 2 p-m.
Police Lieutenant Pat Hogan says both men left the scene after the shooting. Brian Carr, who lives at the apartment, was arrested after a police chase to the top of Grandad Bluff. He could be charged with reckless endangerment. The second man, Redondo Shelley, had not been found at last report.
It used to be one of La Crosse's hottest night spots...
But the former Avalon Ballroom was just plain hot for a while on Wednesday, when fire broke out in what's now the Super Buffet restaurant. The fire scene was a block away from the Monitor Street fire station, and the emergency tied up north-south traffic along the causeway for a short time. Nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire is still unknown. Most of the damage at Super Buffet seemed to be confined to the ceiling and roof areas.
