Last night (Tuesday, July 21) in the 2nd District, a 2-year-old girl was the victim to a fatal shooting on the 6600 block of N. 105th St. First, I would like to express my condolences to the victim’s family. No family should have to witness the loss of their child, nor should a child be the victim of deadly violence.

On behalf of the community, I can express the sheer outrage caused by this senseless act. In 2020 thus far, the majority of homicides have been the result of fatal shootings. The loss of life in our community from gun violence is unacceptable and I am outraged and saddened that it has taken such a young life last night.

The events leading up to the shooting are under investigation. Anyone with any information should contact Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-TIPS or P3 Tips App.

For anyone who could benefit from talking about this crime or other issues with a professional, please call the Trauma Line at (414) 257-7621.
