"A barrage of gunfire:" One dead, two wounded after gunfire in an alley near 38th & Hadley

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are investigating a shooting incident that took place in an alley near 38th and Hadley on Friday afternoon, August 14th. Officials say three people were shot -- 39-year-old Willis Brownlee was killed, two others were wounded. All the victims are men.

Police say two suspects opened fire on the three victims just before 2 p.m.

"Just a barrage of gunfire," said Franklin Prather, neighbor.

A hot August afternoon interrupted by violence.

"Sounded like I was back in the military. I saw two people, one injured and one laying on the ground covered in a yellow bag," said Prather.

Days earlier, gunfire rang out in the same alley, police say the two crimes may be connected.

"There was another shooting or shots fired type of incident. It's something we're aware of. It's something we're following up on and already we have some promising leads that may connect that incident to this incident," said Captain Aaron Raap, Milwaukee Police Department.

As investigation continues, neighbors look for change.

"It makes for an unsafe neighborhood. It makes the residents feel like they can't be out here enjoying the weather without being hurt," said a neighbor.

No arrests have been made and police are searching for the two suspects involved.
