Possible ‘retaliation:’ 25-year-old man fatally shot near 17th and Clarke

MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man was fatally shot near 17th Street and Clarke Street on Friday evening, Feb. 21 around 10:35 p.m.

Police said the 25-year-old victim was sitting in a car when the shooter approached him from a nearby parked car and fired at the victim before fleeing the scene — observed by witnesses heading southbound in a white, four-door car.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, despite life-saving measures attempted by the Milwaukee Fire Department.

A preliminary investigation indicated the shooting might have been “retaliation” to a previous shooting incident, according to police.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the shooter was asked to call the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360 or Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.
