MILWAUKEE -- A 20-year-old man was shot and killed at 47th and Center around 12:30 p.m. Police say the victim was sitting in his car when he was shot.

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn says the 20-year-old victim was a drug dealer, and he was shot several times. The victim was sitting in a parked car at the time of the shooting, and his car rolled to the other side of the intersection of 47th and Center. He was dead by the time officers arrived on scene.

Police raided a home near the fatal shooting and seized several guns from felons. 

Chief Flynn reported a 26-year-old man was shot at 34th and Center just 15 minutes after the 20-year-old man was shot and killed. Chief Flynn says the 26-year-old victim was not killed, and isn't being cooperative with police. 

According to police there is no evidence the gun seizures and the second shooting are connected with the initial fatal shooting.
