Public’s help needed to bring justice in shooting that left three dead

Statement of Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs October 8, 2021

Milwaukee is seeing record levels of violence and last night was no different, as we all search for answers on ways to stop the deadly outbreak plaguing our city. I am asking for help from the public in catching the person responsible for the deaths of three people, and the severe injuries of a fourth person, following a shooting in a parking lot near N. 8th and W. Cherry Streets at approximately 9:45 p.m. last night (Thursday, October 7).

Milwaukee Police say an argument took place right before the shooting, which killed a 19-year-old woman and two men, ages 30 and 36. Police say a fourth person – a man who is 19 years old – was listed in critical condition at a hospital.

My sincere condolences go out to the loved ones and friends of the deceased and of the man who was injured. This was a horrific act of violence and the victims deserve justice, but at this time MPD does not have anyone in custody and are still looking for the suspect.

I strongly encourage the community to help bring justice in this case. Anyone with information is asked to contact Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-Tips or P3 Tips App for a cash reward.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident can receive help by the calling the city’s Trauma Response Team (MPD), at 414-257-7621.
