Three Killed, DOZENS Wounded Following Attack At NBA Playoff Game…

Friday night, Milwaukee erupted in gunfire, with five separate shootings that left three people dead and 24 wounded following Bucks-Celtics Game 6 in the lakeside city of less than 600,000.

As of 9 p.m. Friday night, Wisconsin police had already responded to five separate incidents in which three people died. Two shootings, just hours apart, occurred in downtown Milwaukee near the Deer District, an entertainment district where people gathered to watch the Bucks play the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Video of the earlier incident shows panicked people screaming and running for their lives.

CBS anchor Natalie Shepherd reported the commotion on Friday night on her Twitter account:

“With more than a minute left in the game, fans start sprinting out of Deer District,” Shepherd tweeted.

Here are some of the videos taken from the incident:

More details of this incident from the New York Post report:

“There is open carrying of firearms with utter disregard” for law-abiding citizens, Assistant Police Chief Nicole Waldner said in a Saturday press conference with Mayor Cavalier Johnson. “There is a lack of consciousness that is just really hard to fix right now. It goes beyond law enforcement.”

The spate of violence prompted Johnson to impose an emergency curfew Saturday and Sunday night on people under the age of 21 in the city’s downtown entertainment district.

“We will not tolerate these types of actions in Milwaukee,” Johnson said, adding that “people have just too easy access to guns.”

Seventeen people were wounded during a frantic mass shootout after the game in Milwaukee’s Water Street Bar District, a few blocks east of the arena.

Ten people were taken into custody and 10 guns were seized, according to Milwaukee police. The victims are between the ages of 15 and 47 and are all expected to survive, Fox 6 Milwaukee reported. A 20-year-old man was shot and injured just 30 minutes earlier at the same intersection. He is expected to survive.
