Compounding violence shakes the community
Statement of Alderman Khalif J. Rainey September 14, 2021
Yesterday (Monday, September 13), multiple heinous acts of violence occurred near the intersection of North Sherman Boulevard and West Burleigh Street. In the early hours of Monday morning, a teenager was shot and killed. I send my best to the family and friends of this young man who lost his life far too soon.
The violence was compounded later that night as five people were shot near the same intersection during a vigil for the teen that lost his life earlier that day.
Suspects in both shootings are being sought by police. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-TIPS or use P3 Tips App to remain anonymous.
In the wake of this violence, I would also encourage those in need of support to reach out for help.
For those who were affected by the incident (witness to the incident or its aftermath), you can receive assistance by the calling the city’s Mobile Trauma Response Team (MPD), at 414-257-7621 or by contacting Milwaukee County’s 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Line at 414-257-7222.
