Police have evacuated homes and businesses near a motorcycle shop in Neenah, Wisconsin, in the wake of a shooting and possible hostage situation, according to police and the local media.

A man walked into Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah, a city of about 25,000 people some 100 miles (160 km) north of Milwaukee, on Saturday morning and fired a gun and the scene became an active hostage situation, according to WBAY-TV in nearby Green Bay, citing a police report.

One person was taken to a hospital, the station said.

On its Facebook page, the Neenah Police Department said one shot was fired and it had evacuated homes and businesses, but it provided no further details. People were being asked to stay at least a quarter mile away from the scene.
