MILWAUKEE - A 59-year-old woman is recovering after being hit by a stray bullet on the city's west side.


The woman was sitting on her porch near Sherman and Garfield when a bullet grazed the side of her head near her eye.

Police say there was some sort of altercation between two parties when gunshots were exchanged. 

One of the bullets traveled a half a block South and hit the woman who was sitting on her porch at the time.

Sylvia Joshua said she discovered her sister drenched in blood.

"She was feeling dizzy, she touched her face and she was full of blood." Joshua said.

"She told my sister, I think I've been shot." She added.

It's not clear if any arrests have been made. The case remains under investigation.
