MILWAUKEE - A double shooting left one woman dead and another injured near 2nd Street and Clarke Street just before midnight Sunday, Oct. 11. The family of Tierra Winston, 29, has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
According to police, Winston and a friend were in a vehicle traveling west on Clarke when the shooter approached in another vehicle, got out and fired multiple shots into the victims' vehicle, which crashed into the side of a building.
Winston was pronounced dead at the scene. A 31-year old Milwaukee woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.
Family gathered at the scene Monday evening, seeking answers.
"Everybody love her," said Ivori Winston, Tierra's cousin. "She didn't cause no harm to nobody."
They're offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
"It's just hurting real bad that somebody would take a life that's so precious to us," said Corey Kirkwood, Tierra Winston's uncle.
For Kirkwood, a Milwaukee activist, this tragedy hits close to home. He's used to helping other families in cases like these, not his own.
"I've been out here all night long knocking on doors," he said. "If I can get justice for other families, I can get justice for me and my family."
That family is now finding comfort in each other as they wait to learn what may have led to this tragedy.
"What happened?" said Ivori Winston. "What did she do to deserve this? She didn't deserve this. She didn't."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS or P3 Tips App.
