At 19th and Atkinson, on Tuesday night, prayers for peace echoed in a spot that saw violence 24 hours earlier.

"He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time," said Jimmie Harris, Kemone Love's father.

Kemone was Harris' youngest son. He died on Monday afternoon, April 11th.


"I can't even think right now. It's just never happened to me before so it's hard," said Harris.

Police say 17-year-old Love was shot at Green Bay and Capitol. Shortly thereafter, Love was dumped from a car at 19th and Atkinson.

Family members say one of his cousins waited with him as he lay dead.

"I'm so heartbroken. This hurts so bad," said Tynajia Dotson, Love's girlfriend.Love3

Family members say the 17-year-old recently left Lincoln Hills School for Boys, where he did time for a weapons charge.

They said they were shocked by his death.

"He wasn't an angel, but he wasn't that bad either," said Dotson.Love4

Love was one of five teens shot in a 24-hour span -- from Sunday night, April 11th through Monday afternoon, April 12th.

On Sunday evening, around 7:00 p.m., Milwaukee police were called out to a condo building near 76th and Sheridan. There, 16-year-old Shamaury Young died after he and three other teenage boys were shot.  A 16-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man suffered what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Sharlen Moore runs Urban Underground, a program that seeks to empower Milwaukee youth. She says this violence is a wake up call and a chance for the city to come together and make changes.Love5

"These are the opportunities and and these are the moments where we can say 'OK, what do we need to do about i?'" said Moore.

Meanwhile, Kemonte Love's family will continue to seek justice -- as police search for a suspect.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Milwaukee police.

    “He wasn’t an angel”……….no kidding. That picture alone says everything. This city is F’d.

    Pull the cops out of there and let them handled the problems themselves. Stop dumping money into an area where the residents trash it as fast as it can be fixed.

    Hello! He was just released from Lincoln Hills. Come on now. “He was no angel”. That’s probably the only correct statement in that article. These kids are running the streets with guns. They get mad, they shoot first. Wake up call??? For what? Everybody is awake and knows what’s happening. Just a bunch of blah blah blah. Stay tuned….t-Shirts and balloon drop coming soon.

    “Stop the violence” I’m tired of hearing that call every time someone’s dead. How about the parents start parenting and raising their children the right way and you would probably see a whole lot less violence. I love how it states that he was a good kid but was killed at 2:45 on a Monday when he should of been at school. The only picture of him is one with him throwing a gang sign too. Oh yeah, real nice kid. Cut the BS already nobody’s buying it. I say good riddance.

    WOOOOW he just got out of Lincoln hills for a weapons charge and the BEST pic you can scrape up of him is of him flipping the bird and you’re actually SURPRISED he got shot????? Let me spell this out for you in plain English, little Johnny can be the absolute sweetest kid in the world but if little johnny chooses to pursue criminal activities then he is still apt to get his ass shot,

    Yeah din who finna takes responsibities fo raising day yougins like dis? If little Kashonda shots little Lacravious who finna take responsities fo dat? Bottom line, the africans are a sub culture and simply can’t act as normal human beings. They are preprogrammed for violence.

    you’re right about us all making mistakes as kids. I myself got busted for syphoning gas from school buses when I was younger just so I’d have gas to go cruising. I got in trouble once for throwing eggs at someones house, and a cpl times I ordered pizza to be delivered to peoples houses I had a grudge against (this was before caller id, lol). You really want to compare the choices we made as kids to the ones todays youth are making on a daily basis? I never carjacked anyone, never carried a gun looking for trouble, never did or dealt drugs. Todays issues don’t compare to what they were 30 or 40 years ago so for you to actually use the ‘we’ve all made mistakes’ is beyond ridiculous. I’d like to say parents better realize it’s time to do something with their kids, but we all know thats never going to happen. The city is out of control, plain and simple, and there’s no end to it.
