Teen dead, 5 women injured in mass shooting
Mass shooting in Milwaukee leaves one dead, five injured

MILWAUKEE — One teen is dead and five women are injured following a shooting in Milwaukee overnight.
The shooting happened near 14th and Concordia shortly before 11:30 p.m. Monday night, for an argument that led to a shooting with multiple shooting victims.
Police said a 15-year-old boy was pronounced dead on the scene and five people were injured: a 22-year-old woman, an 18-year-old woman, a 21-year-old woman, a 19-year-old woman, and a 22-year-old woman.
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office identified the 15-year-old as Davion Patterson.
We spoke to several neighbors who did not want to go on camera, but say it's not uncommon to hear gunfire. They say they are sick of feeling unsafe in their community and of young people dying.
"It's scary. I'm so shook up I wasn't able to go to work," a neighbor said.
Jacqueline Moore knows the pain behind gun violence. Her 16-year-old daughter was shot and killed just blocks away from 14th and Concordia nearly three years ago. She's frustrated children continue to be killed.
"15 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."
Moore believes Milwaukee is not the place for you to raise kids anymore.
"I want something better for them (children) and this is not the world they need to be in," Moore said.
Milwaukee Police say seven children under the age of 17 have been killed from Jan. 1 to March 20, 2023.
Police are investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting and are seeking unknown suspects.
If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.
