RPD: Argument led to shot fired at Teezers

Teezers reopens

Teezers Bar & Grill, 1936 Lathrop Ave., Racine.

RACINE — A late-night argument between two men led to a shot being fired outside Teezers Bar and Grill, according to the Racine Police Department.

Between about 11:30 p.m. and midnight Thursday, Racine Police responded to Teezers Bar and Grill, 1936 Lathrop Ave. Two men were reportedly fighting at the establishment when the fight escalated, and one of them fired a single gunshot into the air in the parking lot, police said.

No one was injured in the incident. Racine Police said they had identified a suspect, but as of Friday were still looking for him.

At 8:05 a.m. Friday, a man called Racine County Dispatch to turn himself in for the incident, according to police radio reports.

Teezers was open Friday; however, an employee said that no one who was working during the incident was available for comment.

Teezers was the site of a tragedy on June 17, when John Hetland, a 24-year Racine Police Department veteran, was killed while trying to stop a robbery.

Dalquavis Ward was arrested June 27 after Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department investigators said DNA evidence left at the scene tied Ward to the robbery and shooting. He is scheduled for a motion hearing on Dec. 19 in Racine County Circuit Court.
