No one is in custody.

FOX6 News was near the scene when this shooting occurred -- interviewing the brother of 18-year-old Kendrai Walker. Walker was shot and killed near 28th and Burleigh on May 15th -- and on Tuesday, charges were filed against three men in connection with the shooting that killed Walker and a shooting one day later at a vigil in his honor.

Five people were shot and injured, including Walker's own mother.

"With my mom being injured, my little brother being gone -- it just leaves it all up to me. It's just been kind of hard because we're not having no money. This neighborhood is crazy, man. It's good people in the neighborhood, but it's getting reckless. People don't have no self respect no more. If we don't want to stop the violence, how are we going to make it?" Walker's brother, Nate Moore said.

    just send the national guard in to patrol this whole neighborhood, seems like 75 % of the violence happening lately happens in that area!!! The police cant seem to get it under control!!!!

      Agreed Jeff. The spineless, jellyfish, cowardly weasel liar flynn hasn’t a clue what to do to address the “spike” in violent crime. Mayor McCheese is clueless as well as apparently all those billboards they put up and meetings with the churches have had absolutely no impact on stemming the ever increasing rise in violent crime. They need to acknowledge that they have no strategy for addressing the problem and request the National Guard’s assistance from Governor Walker declaring a state of emergency and enacting a curfew. Then perhaps the Guard and MPD could start to go into all of the bars in the crime ridden areas on a search for wanted felons, illegal weapons, underage drinkers and any other illegal activity they come across. The BS of preaching to the choir at the churches is nothing but a publicity stunt by Mayor McCheese because he doesn’t have the stones to do the right thing.

    Ah the numbers are climbing regarding black on black deaths. Balmore had a few extra killings this weekend..like 9 or so. Chicago had a normal 23 killings. Mind you that all these cities have been run by democrats since anyone can remember. Time to cut the inner city entitlements and send a clear message who the boss is.

    Crime is everywhere the news reports half truths as we all know. They will report on a crime involving minorities before anything. And you all are calling for the national guard if they come it affects everyone. Whether your in a bad neighborhood or good one they are here for control of the entire populous not just some.

    My elderly dad has been living on 27th Auer since 1965. I told him he need to sell his ish and move out of that area before something happens to him or someone visiting him. Unfortunately he is too far gone to hear what I’m saying. SMDH
