MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police arrested 13 suspects on Monday, March 16th after they were dispatched to a neighborhood near 23rd and Center.

A concerned citizen called police around 4 p.m. saying at least 50 people, some armed with guns, were standing in the street. Most of the people ran when the officers arrived. But officers caught and arrested 13 suspects varying in age from 14 to 21. Four of the suspects were carrying firearms, and some also had large amounts of marijuana and ecstasy pills in their possession.

The suspects were booked on various charges including Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and Loitering – Drug Related Activity.

Investigating officers later learned a local production company had been making a video in the street, which was the reason for the large crowd.

The cases will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.

    Ok now, we want this video to be as realistic as possible. All you neighborhood felons bring your stolen firearms and your illegal drugs. There will be no age restrictions here so all are welcome. If you are able to make a few sales in the process, we only ask for 25% of your profit. You will all be famous once we distribute this video. Don’t worry about the police. If they show up at all, we will just explain that we were making a video…..

      First YOU have to change enough to do your part then ask Him for help. Anything is possible with God.
