MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead and another man hospitalized.

Officers responded to reports of gunfire at about 11 a.m. Saturday in the 4400 block of N. Green Bay Ave. This is the same location where a fatal shooting happened last June.

A 24-year-old Milwaukee man was declared dead at the scene. A 42-year-old Milwaukee man was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators have not said what led up to it, but believe two men exchanged gun fire.

FOX6 News spoke to a man who says he was in the gas station minutes before the shooting.

"It stunned me. It really did. You could be anywhere and something could happen," said Michael Jordan, heard gunshots.

Back on June 17th, a 34-year-old man was shot and killed in the parking lot as well. A 21-year-old man is charged and awaiting trial in that case.

Authorities say the investigation with this incident is still in its very early stages.

    There are protests that take place in the inner city in regards to the violence , however, the media fails to cover such positivity. Go figure. There was just one held last night on 27th and North Avenue, no news coverage though.

      27th and North? That’s wouldn’t be my 1st choice to take tens of thousands of dollars worth of video equipment either. Besides, we see plenty of the ‘stop the violence’ rallies after black on black violence. While I applaud the ones who put these together, nothing is going to change what is going on in Milwaukee. This is the culture now. I do feel for the ones that want to make a change, but they’re simply fighting an unwinnable battle. The Milwaukee we knew and embraced 30 or 40 years ago is long gone…. albeit not forgotten.

        I agree with totally on this aspect. The ones who are supposedly in charge in Milwaukee are sitting back and feeding the fire. They want them to kill each other, so they don’t have to get off their rear ends and do something themselves. I have been saying this a long time, and Barrett could be spending some of those millions on THIS problem instead of a stupid trolley. Grab a hold a these kids and give them something in their lives to look forward to besides death or prison. They CAN move some of those funds to other things, but then they cant put the extra in their own pockets..and Abele/Barrett both voted to EXPAND the prison system in Wisconsin instead of making services for young kids to maybe get work skills and call it “Learn To Earn” (let them get paid while learning skills) and they will thrive to survive..

        i keep asking what is this city going to do when the people who are currently paying the taxes have all moved and all that’s left are the thugs and lazy deadbeat entitlement slobs? how is milwaukee going to pay for barrett’s choo-choo then? this city has gone to hell and there’s no saving it now.

      Sorry that protest was hood rats protesting against the police. Like I said the only black lives that matter r the ones that the ghetto can blame on police. Black on black violence/murder happens every night, day, hour, and to the minute in this city. AND NO PROTESTS.

    Didn’t we just hear that black people matter at a rally for Dontra Hamilton? We have a young black woman shot in the head and decomposing on the north west side of Milwaukee. A wild west choot out on 24TH and Nash. A black woman that killed her sister in a violent confration, and now this? Black people matter? Not to other black people it doesn’t. I know. Let’s blame it on whitey. OH and Tom Barrett? Resign, your a joke you coward.
