MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police tell FOX6 News three people were shot near The Miramar Theatre near Locust and Oakland Saturday evening, June 1.

According to The Miramar Theatre's website, a $10 "Summer Jam" concert was happening at the venue Saturday. Music guests include Munch Lauren, MT Twins, Bankhead, 54 Baby Trey, Chosenkidd, YBN Kenny, Chicken P, Spanish Rice and MariBoyz.

Around 8:10 p.m., Milwaukee police say a fight broke out among concertgoers inside the theater. As patrons began to exit the theater, an unknown suspect began to fire multiple gunshots into the crowd of people leaving.

A 25-year-old man, and two 20-year-old women were struck by gunfire. All three suffered non-life threatening injuries.

FOX6 News spoke with Hilary Chavez, who was eating at a nearby Thai restaurant when the shots rang out.

"We were watching people going into the Miramar, they looked like a lot of young people going in for a show. Then suddenly everybody was rushing out like they were scared. We saw them burst through the doors and come out into the streets," said Chavez.
