MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police say three individuals showed up at hospitals with gunshot wounds on Thursday, May 22nd — after two separate shooting incidents.

In the first incident, Milwaukee police say a 24-year-old Milwaukee man was shot and injured.

Police say the man — suffering from a non-fatal gunshot wound, presented himself at the hospital around 12:30 p.m.

Police say the circumstances that led to the shooting remain unclear — but the victim tells police it happened in the 2600 block of W. Juneau.

The victim has an arrest record with MPD for robbery, recklessly endangering safety, bail jumping, resisting an officer — and he was convicted of homicide in 2011.

The second incident involved a 22-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman showing up at the hospital with non life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Police say the shooting occurred in the 2000 block of S. 16th Street around 7:30 p.m.

Police say it appears this shooting is accidental — and occurred when the male victim was attempting to unload a handgun.

    Is the time for this correct? I work at harley-Davidson and was waking to my car at 4:30 when a round of shots was fired at this exact location.

        Oo good catch! Thanks John… I definitely thought it said 3600. We had a shooting here yesterday too, that apparently went unreported.

    The “homicide” was an accidental shooting that led to his friend’s death. The media is a trip!

    umm, barrett or flynn.. you guys want to step in and explain why the 24 year old is out after being convicted of murder in 2011? you guys are so hell bent on gun control, but yet a guy like this is roaming the streets, obviously STILL getting into trouble.

    So he killed some one 3years ago..amount other illegal activities. .convicted felon..with a gun…shot…does thus violate probation..is he on probation even..another example of weak court system..and then repeat offenders..

    Rob – that is a ridiculous comment. Doesn’t look to me like this criminal really cares about the laws, regardless of who it is that implements them. If you’re going to blame Walker for this, let’s find out if this guy had a CC license in the first place!! I’d bet all of my money, plus yours, that he doesn’t.

    CC, the Legislature & Gov. Walker had nothing to do w/that chicken5h!t having a gun at all. RESPONCIBLE CITIZENS get a CC Permit. CHICKEN5H!T CONVICTED FELONS CAN’T, WON’T & DON’T. If you’ve been CONVICTED OF KILLING ANYTHING W/ANY WEAPON, YOU SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO SEARCHES & PATDOWNS 27/7/365 FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

    CC law has nothing to do with criminals it protects the law abiding citizens or at least gives us a fighting chance against the criminals!
