MILWAUKEE -- Shots were fired into a car, killing one person and injuring another near 10th and Chambers in Milwaukee Wednesday night, July 31. There were still no suspects in custody on Thursday, Aug. 1.

Meantime, a memorial began forming Thursday for the 26-year-old man killed, who was known to loved ones as B-Man.

Police say around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, two men were sitting in a car when unknown suspects fired multiple gunshots -- striking both men. One of the victims, a 21-year-old man, ran to a relative's home near 9th and Locust. He suffered serious, but non-life threatening injures -- and was taken to the hospital. At the scene, the second victim, a 26-year-old man was found inside the car with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead.

"It's changed dramatically," Perkins said.

Perkins said while she did not know the victim, the violence in her neighborhood has gotten out of hand.

Just a few blocks away at Calvary Baptist Church, Cynthia Blackmon agrees.

"It's very disturbing," Blackmon said. "Unfortunately, it's like you say to yourself -- 'another one?' Every day this happens."

Blackmon said the church is working to bring families and the community together.

"The biggest thing that can happen would be for everyone to try to do something to help," Blackmon said.

For now, Blackmon is offering words of support to the victim's family.

"I would pray for their family to be able to get through this," Blackmon said.

Police have not named the 26-year-old man who was killed.
