Local leaders react to quadruple-shooting near 27th and Capitol

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Local leaders are reacting to a quadruple shooting that happened Wednesday, April 7 near 27th and Capitol.

Reggie Moore of the City of Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention says homicides are down this year but non-fatals shootings are up.

Moore said a minor confrontation, like the event on Wednesday night, should not end in someone being killed or injured.

Moore says his team is working with community partners like Milwaukee County and other organizations to prevent violence but that people must think before they react.

“These are situational incidents that again there’s not going to be a violence interrupter. There’s not going to be a law enforcement person on every corner."

Moore also says they are moving into their next phase of their violence prevention plan—which is focusing on mental health.
