MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee police are investigating a fatal shooting that allegedly took place outside a strip club near 26th and State Street early Sunday morning, July 20th.
The shooting happened in the street.
Police say a 33-year-old Milwaukee man was shot in an altercation, around 2:15 a.m. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died. Police have identified him as Vincent Fayne.
The sign on the door urges patrons to have fun -- but early Sunday morning, the scene outside Rickey's on State was far from fun.
"It`s sad. It really is. That you have to wake up and hear this type of stuff in our community. This community right here - we`re usually pretty quiet," Elizabeth Perry, who lives in the area, told FOX6 News.
Perry says she's stunned to hear someone died after being shot on her street. She wonders if the altercation occurred after the man had been patronizing the strip club.
"They should beef up their security after this," Perry said.
Later Sunday morning, police took what appeared to be a surveillance system from the property. Several security cameras are pointed at the street and the strip club's main entrance.
"This is actually a good area to eat food. You`ve got the store and blood bank. I`ve never actually seen anyone getting shot over in this area," another neighbor told FOX6 News.
As they locked the gated back door, strip club employees declined to comment.
Perry says she can't recall any major problems in the neighborhood, but after Sunday's fatal shooting, she's calling on the owners of the strip club to provide the community with extra peace of mind.
"If they had security around outside as well as inside, they`d probably have more patrons," Perry said.
There are no suspects in custody in connection with this shooting.
