MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Investigators were back on scene at 36th and Courtland collecting shell casings near the triple shooting, Friday.

Milwaukee police say a 13-year-old girl, 14-year-old boy, and 16-year-old girl were shot, Thursday afternoon.

The daughter of community activist, Frank Nitty is one of the victims. “I feel helpless. Honestly, I feel helpless,” he said.

But the teens are expected to be okay.

“Mentally they’re very strong, very strong. You wouldn’t even be able to know that they went through something like this.”

A 14-year-old was arrested at the scene while other suspects tried to get away from police.

Surveillance video shows the car led officers on a chase causing a three-car crash near 41st and North. The car slammed into a pickup truck. The other vehicle was a school bus. An adult on the bus and a 13-year-old were taken to the hospital.

“Fifteen to 20 police cars, police officers everywhere, people on the ground. It was just very chaotic,” said Walter Love, who witnessed the accident.

People in the neighborhood say an argument likely led to the shooting.

Nitty says the community has to find a way to stop the violence. “How does a 14-year-old get a gun?.  I’m hurt, I’m totally hurt by the situation because this shouldn’t happen to nobody’s kids.”

The four people in the car that fled police were taken into custody.

One of them suffered life-threatening injuries.
