Three People Shot During Milwaukee Bucks Championship Celebration

More than a dozen shots were fired at the intersection of Water Street and Juneau Avenue around 12:45 a.m. in the midst of the Milwaukee Bucks championship celebration early Wednesday morning.

Police said three people suffered injuries that were not life-threatening in two simultaneous shootings at 12:42 a.m.

Along the 200 block of East Juneau Avenue, a 19-year-old Wauwatosa woman was injured and an 18-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested, police said.

About a block away, on the 200 block of East Knapp Street, a 22-year-old Illinois man and a 32-year-old Milwaukee man were injured, police said. A 25-year-old Milwaukee man was taken into custody.

Seconds before the shooting, a large group of individuals could be seen running through a parking lot at East Juneau Avenue and Water Street.

Additional suspects are being sought in both incidents, and police did not release any details on the circumstances leading up to each incident.

Police estimated more than 100,000 people were in attendance in or around the Deer District on Tuesday and reported the crowd was “overwhelmingly positive and appropriate for such an exciting event,” but noted two other incidents that led to arrests.
