Milwaukee Police are investigating a stabbing that left two people dead on the city's south side.
Officials were called to 20th and Lapham just before 7 p.m. Thursday night, where they found a 26-year-old female and a 47-year-old male dead.
Two children, ages 8 and 9, were transported to the hospital for what police call superficial injuries.
Officials believe the incident started as a family dispute and that everyone involved is related. Neighbors say crime in this area is not a surprise.
\"It usually happens like 24/7, it always happens it's full of crime in this neighborhood,\" Celia Moreno, who lives in the area, said.
A 22-year-old is in custody and police say there is no present danger to the community.
