Heinous triple shooting last night near 10th and Burleigh
Statement of Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs - August 13, 2018
As I spent this morning getting my child ready for the first day of school, I thought about the triple shooting near N. 10th and W. Burleigh Streets. My heart goes out to the family of the five-year-old who are left to pray for his recovery from multiple gunshot wounds and the loss of his father. The shooting last night was heinous and I ask anyone with information to please immediately contact Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360.
Despite the rash of shootings that have occurred recently, I still believe that Milwaukee has the ability to be a great city, but the devaluation of Black life that exists within it has to change. Our babies deserve to live and any trigger-happy person who doesn’t understand that should not be operating freely within our community.
