MILWAUKEE -- City leaders could face tough questions Monday morning from residents fed up with crime and gun violence in Milwaukee.

Three people were killed and six others were wounded in seven shooting incidents in the city between May 16th and May 19th, right at the end of the city's annual Ceasefire Week.

The public forum is an opportunity for officials to give them information about work opportunities along with the role that the community can play in doing something about the crime.
