3 Killed and 24 Wounded in Milwaukee Shooting After Bucks-Celtics Game

Twenty-four were wounded, and three got killed in nine separate shootings in Milwaukee following Bucks-Celtics Game 6 on Friday.

According to the report, three of the shootings occurred near Fiserv Forum,  just outside Milwaukee’s Deer District, where thousands of fans watched the NBA’s Eastern Conference semifinals.

On her Twitter account, CBS anchor Natalie Shepherd reported the commotion on Friday night.

“With more than a minute left in the game, fans start sprinting out of Deer District,” Shepherd tweeted.

New York Post reported:

Milwaukee erupted in gunfire Friday, with nine separate shootings that left three people dead and 24 wounded in the lakeside city of less than 600,000.

“There is open carrying of firearms with utter disregard” for law-abiding citizens, Assistant Police Chief Nicole Waldner said in a Saturday press conference with Mayor Cavalier Johnson. “There is a lack of consciousness that is just really hard to fix right now. It goes beyond law enforcement.”

The spate of violence prompted Johnson to impose an emergency curfew Saturday and Sunday night on people under the age of 21 in the city’s downtown entertainment district.

“We will not tolerate these types of actions in Milwaukee,” Johnson said, adding that “people have just too easy access to guns.”

Seventeen people were wounded during a frantic mass shootout after the game in Milwaukee’s Water Street Bar District, a few blocks east of the arena.

Ten people were taken into custody and 10 guns were seized, according to Milwaukee police. The victims are between the ages of 15 and 47 and are all expected to survive, Fox 6 Milwaukee reported. A 20-year-old man was shot and injured just 30 minutes earlier at the same intersection. He is expected to survive.
