MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Eleven people were injured and three died in 13 confirmed shootings throughout Milwaukee this weekend.

The following shootings span from 10:00 p.m. Friday, June 11 through 4:05 p.m. Sunday, June 13.

Milwaukee police say there have been 75 homicides and 368 non-fatal shootings in 2021 from January 1 to June 13. This is compared to 70 homicides and 211 non-fatal shootings in 2020 during the same period. 

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said too many people in the city are solving their problems with guns. He said domestic violence and drug or alcohol use are also fueling the increased violence.

"We work as hard as we can to have as many positive activities for as many people as we can, and that's why we're putting so much effort for example working with Employ Milwaukee to get people trained for jobs," Barrett said. "But so much of this is personal behavior, and people who are solving their problems using guns."

Acting Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman said MPD cannot be the only solution.

"We see a crisis in our youth community," Norman said. "We see a crisis in regards to our youth being involved in a lot of these behaviors out there. We need to have some other type of impact besides the enforcement aspect, and we are, as the Milwaukee Police Department committee to be part of those collaborations. It is important to have a healthy and safe neighborhood."

Milwaukee Alderman Michael Murphy said schools around the city are trying to teach kids about conflict resolution. He said solutions to violence have to involve talking to kids at an increasingly younger age.

"When a child has seen so much trauma in their lives, they lose a lot of empathy," Murphy said. "And when you lose empathy, you can do a lot of bad things."

One of the shootings was later determined by police to be self-inflicted and is no longer reflected in these numbers.
