Milwaukee police: 2 shot, 1 dead near 13th and Becher

MILWAUKEE — One person is dead, another wounded after a shooting near 13th and Becher on Milwaukee’s south side on Sunday evening, Feb. 24.

Milwaukee police say officers responded to the neighborhood shortly before 7 p.m. — and found an 18-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound. They performed CPR until the Milwaukee Fire Department arrived on the scene. The shooting victim did not survive his injuries — he died on the scene.

A few moments later, police say a second shooting victim arrived at a hospital suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot injury. The 19-year-old man indicated he was with the homicide victim — and they were both seated in a vehicle when a suspect fired multiple gunshots into their car.

Police say the circumstances of this incident are being sorted out.

Milwaukee police are searching for suspects in this case.
