MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The gunman who shot and killed two people on Milwaukee's Ceasefire Sabbath this past Sunday, May 18th near 11th and Atkinson is still at large. On Monday, police released the names of those killed in the triple shooting incident that occurred in broad daylight near the Atkinson Beer and Liquor store -- and now, their families are speaking out.
Witnesses told a FOX6 News crew at the scene on Sunday afternoon they heard "a cascade of bullets."
31-year-old Wilbert Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene.
49-year-old Marvin Smith died at the hospital.
"It was really terrible the way that shooting just started. Boom, boom, boom, boom," a witness told FOX6 News.
"I seen my nephew laying down on the ground," Lewis' uncle, Tony Lewis said.
Both Lewis' uncle and Smith's mother say their loved ones were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"This is very hard for to lose my son like that. I know my son hadn't did nothing to nobody," Earlean Smith said.
Earlean Smith says Marvin Smith was in the area of 11th and Atkinson -- visiting his girlfriend, when he went to the liquor store to grab a beer.
"Next thing I heard -- the man just come from behind the building shooting and I don`t think they say Marvin was the target because Marvin was standing outside talking to a lady. But when the other man come out the store where they were at on the corner, the man come from outside the building and shot that man in the head and everybody went to running and he wasn`t leaving and shot my son," Earlene Smith said.
Now in mourning and unable to embrace her son, Earlean Smith says she hopes someone speaks up -- and prays police will find the person who took two lives.
"Marvin is just a free going person and he be happy all the time and he talks to everybody. I don`t believe in this retaliation and stuff because God will fix everything. I do wish whoever did it, that he be caught and put in jail," Earlean Smith said.
Earlean Smith says her son was just about to start up a landscaping business.
As for the third victim, a 48-year-old man, he was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound, and is said to be in stable condition.
Police have no one in custody in connection with this triple, and double-fatal shooting.
