FOX6 News was told that employee is OK, and has returned to work.

"It`s really getting horrible out here," Tatum said.

"Three in 30 minutes surprises me, but crime doesn`t surprise me any longer in Milwaukee. Milwaukee used to be a great city, but it`s slowly deteriorating. It`s becoming the crime center of the world, it seems like, you know? So much crime, you know?" Graves said.

FOX6 News has not confirmed this with investigators, but sources at the crime scenes indicated the suspects got away with beef sticks and candy.
