Milwaukee Mass Shooting Kills Teenage Boy, Injures 5 Women
MILWAUKEE (AP) — A 15-year-old boy died and five young women were injured in a Milwaukee mass shooting in the latest violence to target the city’s young people, police said.
The 15-year-old boy died at the scene following the shooting that occurred about 11:30 p.m. Monday on the city’s north side, Milwaukee police said. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the boy as Davion Patterson.
Five women, ages 18, 19, 21, and two 22-year-olds, were taken to a hospital for treatment of non-fatal injuries, police said.
Investigators said they were looking for unknown suspects and trying to learn what led up to the shooting.
Jacqueline Moore told WTMJ-TV that her 16-year-old daughter was shot and killed in the same area nearly three years ago.
“Fifteen or 14 years old, it doesn’t matter it was still a child,” Moore said. “Somebody lost their baby again. Another Black parent has to bury their baby.
