Milwaukee Shootings: 3 shot outside Bucks game; hours later, 17 others shot few blocks away

MILGUOKI – Seventeen people were shot Friday night in downtown Milwaukee, just hours after being shot three blocks away near the arena where the Milwaukee Bucks were playing in the NBA playoffs.

Ten people were detained in the downtown shooting and nine firearms were found, according to Milwaukee Police Captain Warren Allen.

The 17 people shot were between the ages of 15 and 47, Allen said.

Two men, aged 26 and 29, and a 16-year-old girl were injured in the shooting near the arena, according to Allen. Everyone is expected to survive, he said.

“There was a 19-year-old man who was taken into custody in connection with this incident,” Allen said. “The charges are being investigated by the Milwaukee County Attorney’s Office.”

This incident happened around 9:12 p.m. near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Highland Avenue, about one block from the court of the Bucks’s Fiserv Forum.

Police did not disclose the names of the people involved or their possible motives.

The Bucks lost to the Celtics on Friday night – 108-95 – forcing the seventh game on Sunday to determine who will play Miami in the Eastern Conference finals.
