2 arrested in connection to quadruple shooting near 38th and Wright
Two people were taken into custody in connection to a triple shooting that happened in Milwaukee on Thursday evening, Oct. 10. A 37-year-old man died, and a 14-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy were shot.
Thursday night around 5:30 p.m., Milwaukee police say officers on patrol near 38th and Wright heard gunshots and saw people running. They were able to chase down an armed suspect and arrest him; a gun was located nearby.
Police say a 26-year-old man who was injured in the shooting is also believed to be a suspect, and will be taken into custody once he's released from the hospital.
Officials are also saying the 14-year-old who was shot was critically injured; they said she was in "grave condition."
Along with those two, a 37-year-old man was shot and killed and a 10-year-old boy suffered a non-life threatening injury.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett reacted to the shooting.
"There are way too many children that have been victims of violence and that obviously is disconcerting and angering to me. We're doing everything we can obviously we need to have some help... from the state so that we can get more resources to deal both with the police department and with prevention," Mayor Barrett said.
Police say they're working on getting details on what the relationships are between all the victims involved.
Criminal charges will be presented in the next couple days.
