Milwaukee’s mayor and police chief are pleading with citizens and lawmakers to help address ongoing gun violence punctuated by shootings outside a Bucks/Celtics playoff game that left 21 injured.
Police Chief Jeffrey Norman said at a press conference Tuesday that police have arrested 11 people varying in ages from 19 to 30.
The incidents happened Friday night by the Fiserv Forum near the Deer District.
Two of those arrested have been identified as shooters.
Nine of the 11 guns that were recovered were fired that night.
Norman said people have to “join together in partnerships” to help limit gun violence.
Mayor Cavalier Johnson called on the Wisconsin Legislature to make it more difficult for people to get guns.
