"Two to three shots," DJ Rhodes said.

"It just looked like chaos. (The victim) was with somebody else -- one of his so-called friends, and they said when he ran out the tavern, the dudes ran out of here, from Ealy's Oo and shot him," a relative of the victim said.

"That was my son-in-law," a relative of the victim said.

Family members gathered at the scene Sunday -- distraught over the senseless violence they say happens far too often in Milwaukee.

"The violence needs to stop. And if we don`t, as parents and good citizens, try to do everything we can to stop it then it`s going to be forever going on," Ward said.

    Mayor McCheese and his lackey flynn should have Officers do some routine license checks and ID checks in bars like Ealy’s OO and then they would find these felons carrying firearms while consuming alcohol. No instead they go into the inner city churches where there aren’t felons carrying firearms. Idiots that’s all you can say about those two losers.

    I would think the blacks should protest all the black on black killings. On the other hand they are to stupid to do that. They would rather blame the cops for that.

    I used to buy the Sunday Milwaukee journal sentinel for the classic comics. I now just read here on what our north side friends do. It never ceases to amaze me on some of the reasons for shooting literally their own brothers, other family members, friends & drug dealers. All is well as long as they keep shooting up their own. Just stay out of my hood.
