MILWAUKEE -- After three days of boycotting a Milwaukee BP gas station, protesters and the owner came together for a block party on Saturday, July 23rd.
Earlier this week, police say a clerk at the gas station located near Sherman and Burleigh in Milwaukee, fired his gun into the air trying to disperse a crowd of kids.
A misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge has been filed against him.
Community members and store owners met on Saturday, July 23rd hoping to get to know each other better and come to an understanding.
"We work on bringing the relationship back. The gas station is going to be there, we realize that, the park is going to be there, we realize that -- now we have to talk to the youth, hear them out, give them whatever resources they need, whatever programming they need," said James Harris, organizer.
Everything at Saturday's block party was donated by the community, including a local DJ, bounce house and even some barbecue.
The event effectively brings the gas station boycott to an end.
