WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The Wausau Police Department is searching for a person of interest following a shooting that happened Sunday morning on the 800 block of S 3rd Avenue.

That person is identified as 17-year-old Nicholas Multani of Wausau. Multani is a white, male, approximately 6′0″ tall, 175 pounds, and has black hair. He is believed to be driving a silver 2002 Mazda Millenia bearing WI license plate AHY2661.

A warrant was issued on Monday morning for Multani’s arrest. He is considered a person of interest and is accused of disappearing during probation. Police are still trying to find him.

At 11:23 a.m. on Sunday, someone called the police and reported his home was struck by gunfire following a dispute with an individual outside the caller’s home. The individual fled the scene in a vehicle prior to the officers’ arrival. Officers located evidence consistent with a shooting. There were no injuries as a result of the shooting.

Multani is being investigated by police for first-degree reckless endangering of safety. They are working to collect video from the area to help find him. Investigators are also working with his family to identify connections and are following those leads.

He should be considered armed and dangerous.

“If someone were to come across this individual we’d ask that you just call the police. Do not try to approach or confront someone that has a wanted status,” said Lieutenant Nathan Cihlar from the Wausau Police Department.

Anyone with knowledge of Multani’s whereabouts is encouraged to call Marathon County Dispatch at 715-261-7795. If you would like to remain anonymous, you can submit a tip through Marathon County Crime Stoppers by calling 1-877-409-8777 or by visiting www.marathoncountycrimestoppers.org.
