Triple shooting rocks normally quiet 2nd District

From Capitol Drive to Good Hope Road and from 55th Street to 107th, the 2nd Aldermanic District is filled with well maintained, quiet neighborhoods that just want to exist in peace.

Unfortunately, such places can be neighborhoods of first choice for people seeking to take part in quick mobile drug dealing transactions which sometimes break down into violent confrontations. That’s what happened on Sunday (May 13) when three people were shot — one fatally.

The shooting that happened at Gertrude and Palmetto is not reflective of the good, family-oriented, hardworking people who live in that neighborhood. I know that neighborhood to be filled with homeowners, one of the highest Girl Scout cookie sellers in Wisconsin, and a committed neighborhood Block Watch organization.

In order to ensure the stability of neighborhoods like these, I encourage concerned constituents to collect as much information as possible on the make, model, and license plate of vehicles involved in mobile drug dealing and report that information to the Milwaukee Police Department’s non-emergency number, 414-933-4444. Your tips and participation as citizens can help to keep our neighborhoods safe.
