A photo on Facebook went viral claiming that Leon's Frozen Custard Drive-in on S. 27th St. was shot up, but it was actually a window with a defective crack that caused the window to shatter into small pieces, the night manager confirmed.

Milwaukee, WI - On Sunday, a photo showing Leon's Frozen Custard, 3131 S. 27th Street with a window shattered into pieces and "Leon's just got shot up" written in the center of the photo had gone viral on Facebook and interstate. When Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) contacted Leon's, the night manager explained that the window had shattered after "a crack led to the defective glass" to just shatter in pieces. He said, the photo posted is real in regards to the window being broken into pieces, but what has been circulating in Facebook about a recent shooting at Leon's was not true.
The window broke on Thursday night around 11:30 p.m. and Leon's is open on its regular hours, the Leon's night manager said.
On April 7, 2004, a vehicle pulled up and shot at a group of people who had just bought some custard at Leon's. One male was injured in the drive-in area, according to police records.
