MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Milwaukee Police Department is investigated six separate shooting incidents that occurred late Friday night, August 2nd and early Saturday morning, August 3rd. As a result of the shootings, one person died and nine others were injured.

The first shooting incident occurred at approximately 10:30 p.m., in the 4100 block of N. 50th St. Police say a 24-year-old man suffered a life-threatening injury and a 41-year-old man suffered a non-life threatening injury in the same incident.

"He could have killed any one of us at any given moment," said one neighbor who was outside during the time of the shooting.

Witnesses say the 24-year-old man was gasping for air after being shot in the face and chest by an unknown suspect. They believe the 41-year-old man was caught in the crossfire while working on a car.

Both men are being treated at area hospitals. There is no known motive and no one is in custody at this time.

At approximately 10:35 p.m., in the 4800 block of N. Hopkins, a 40-year-old man sustained a non-life threatening injury. He is also being treated at an area hospital.

Around 12 a.m. in the 2000 block of S. Layton Blvd., an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old man suffered non-life threatening injuries. They are both being treated at area hospitals. There is no known motive at this time.

A short time later at about 12:30 a.m., a 32-year-old and a 22-year-old male suffered non-life threatening injuries in the 1900 block of S. 5th Pl. The incident appears to be related to a fight. Both victims are being treated at area hospitals.

At approximately 2:20 a.m., in the 600 block of W. North Ave., a 27-year-old man was fatally wounded. The incident appears to be related to a fight. No one is in custody at this time.

"I'm feeling the pain I wish on no other mother. That's just like another son to me," said Aretha Ford.

Ford didn't know the victim who died, but remembers her son being killed by gunfire nine years ago. She and her family set up a makeshift memorial at 6th and North.

Lastly, two 24-year-old males suffered non-life threatening injuries in the 2500 block of N. 27th St. around 2:40 a.m. Both are being treated at area hospitals. No suspects have been taken into custody.

"We need to pull together. Us, being people, we need to come together," said Ford.
