NOW: Milwaukee sees 5 shootings in less than 24 hours: ’Don’t really know what to think’

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee police are investigating five shootings that occurred in less than 24 hours. Two of the shootings put innocent bystanders in harm's way, including students at Marquette University. 

Homes and a car were hit with bullets just before 4 a.m. near 9th and Windlake Avenue. 

"Everyone in the crib was sleeping and then all we hear is two rounds of fast guns,” Joseouis Rameriz said. 

Dozens of shots were fired at 9th and Windlake Monday morning, leaving a woman hurt and homes and Joseouis Rameriz's car riddled with bullets. 

Police say the victim is a 58-year-old woman. She was grazed by a stray bullet that went through her bedroom. She is in stable condition. 

"I was just shocked like that that happened and I was concerned about my friends because a lot of my friends live in that building,” said Marquette University Freshman Kelly Tite.

“I was definitely taken back a bit. I don’t really know what to think of it. I’m still reacting to it,” said Marquette University Freshman Danny Casper.

Marquette University students were shaken up after a stray bullet went through a Wells Tower window around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night. Policed say people in two cars were shooting at each other. Fortunately, no students were hurt. 

Three other shootings are under investigation. A 23-year-old man was killed Sunday night near 20th and Townsend. His name has not yet been released and no arrests have been made. 

A 33-year-old man was hurt in a shooting near 19th and Lincoln. Police have a 28-year-old woman in custody. 

A 25-year-old man was shot near Holton and Townsend. The circumstances leading up to that shooting are still under investigation. 

For Rameriz, he's not surprised by the violence in the last few days in Milwaukee. 

“To us it was just like nothing because we hear gunshots like every day around here so it was just like oh somebody else just got shot,” Rameriz said.

Anyone with information on these shootings is urged to call Milwaukee police or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-8477.
