Video obtained by FOX6 News shows dozens running in fear as shots rang out in the crowded area. The Milwaukee Lakefront Fireworks wrapped up about an hour earlier, and people were out celebrating the holiday.

"It looked like a ruined Fourth of July holiday for everyone’s families," said Zach Barrow.

The medical examiner's website shows 11 children under 18 killed in Milwaukee County so far in 2023. 

"It’s kind of just terrifying seeing everybody running from that and the horror that happened," said Zach Yergens.

Police believe the shooting happened during an argument.

"Being that young and getting into an argument and getting killed over it is not great, obviously," said Elizabeth Martin, who works on North Avenue.

 "Whether it’s gangs, bad crowd, poor decisions – that should never happen," said Barrow.
