Man Shot to Death At Nightclub Marks Milwaukee's First Homicide of 2017

MILWAUKEE - A man is dead after a shooting at a nightclub early this morning.

The Milwaukee Police were called out to Dee's Elegance Nightclub shortly before 5 a.m. this morning for the homicide.

The 37-year-old man was shot inside the club after an altercation with at least two people who then fled the scene. Police believe one of these people fired the gun, and they are currently seeking these possible suspects.

The investigation into this incident remains ongoing.

His family has identified the 37-year-old man as Patrick Presley. They say he was a family man with a contracting business.

His brother told CBS 58 he went out to celebrate New Year's and was defending his wife before he was shot.

Before going out, Presley wished everyone a safe New Year's on Facebook, and he streamed a Facebook Live video a half hour before the shooting took place.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow.
