Multiple people injured, 1 killed in Milwaukee shootings over the weekend


Around 7 p.m. on Saturday, a 19-year-old woman and a man were both near 57th and Fairmont. The victims sustained minor injuries. Milwaukee police officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shootings.

On Sunday, around 1:30 in the afternoon, three individuals, a 20-year-old man, a 29-year-old woman, and an 18-year-old man were shot and injured outside a Walmart store on E. Capitol Dr.

Authorities said the victims are in stable condition at a hospital. The incident prompted Walmart to close. Police taped off a large section of the retailer’s parking lot for investigation.

A Walmart customer, Willie Perry told Fox 6 Now, “I was just on my way to pick up some items here. I get over here and see all the police cars. I see they’ve got the yellow tape out, and when I roll up here, I find out there was a shooting that’s taken place.”

Perry added, “I usually shop here on a regular basis, very close to our place of worship. It just wasn’t meant for me to come over until just right now. t’s really a tragedy here. My prayers go out to those three victims and their families — that they [are] blessed with patience, and this is something that would be avoided in the future.”
