gun-war5MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are asking for the public’s help in locating five suspects wanted in connection with a shooting near 11th and Locust on Wednesday evening, January 25th.

The victims in this shooting, two adult males, were seated inside a vehicle when five suspects armed with handguns approached them shortly  before 8:00 p.m. The suspects fired several times at the vehicle and struck the victims.  The suspects fled from the scene and both victims were treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Neighbors recalled the frightening night with FOX6 News on Thursday.

“More than one place got hit; more than 50 shots. It was just heartbreaking to hear that,” said Marquise Brazil, a resident.

“I couldn’t count it was so many, I just got on the ground. I told my kids to get on the ground,” said Thompson.

Anyone with information is asked to call Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360.

    If you are involved in criminal activities this stuff will happen. If you live in the cheapest city in america, this stuff will happen. If you live in the cheapest part of the cheapest city your block will most likely get shot up.

      What do you mean by “cheapest”? If you mean poorest, being poor does not mean you have to be violent of commit crimes. Many poor people are law abiding citizens. These are criminals who have no respect, values or morals. These are young people who embrace the “thug life”.

    The crime and violence keep getting worse in Milwaukee While Barrett does nothing except for cheese for the camera. In all my years I have never seen such a useless Mayor who is more concerned with kissing butt than he is the safety of the people. It’s going to take some strong actions to stop this, and Barrett just doesn’t have the backbone.
