Milwaukee Shootings: 3 Shots Outside Bucks Game; Hours later, 17 others shot a few blocks away

MILWAUKEE — Seventeen people were shot dead in downtown Milwaukee Friday night, just hours after three were shot dead a few blocks away near the arena where the Milwaukee Bucks were playing in the NBA playoffs.

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

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

According to Allen, two men, 26 and 29, and a 16-year-old girl were injured in the shooting near the arena. All are expected to survive, he said.

“A 19-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with this incident,” Allen said. “The charges are pending review by the Milwaukee County Attorney’s Office.”

This incident occurred around 9:12 p.m. near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Highland Avenue, about a block from the Bucks’ home courthouse at Fiserv Forum.

The police did not name the people involved or a possible motive.

The Bucks lost to the Celtics Friday night — 108-95 — and forced a seventh game on Sunday to determine who will play Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals.
