MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police were busy Friday and early Saturday morning (August 31st and September 1st) after at least six shootings were reported over an eight-hour period.
Police say four people were wounded in four shootings between 9:15 and 9:50 Friday night:
Another three people were injured in a pair of shootings around 5:00 a.m. Saturday. A 49-year-old man was shot in the buttocks near 49th and Center. Ten minutes later, a 34-year-old man and 32-year-old woman were shot near 48th and Wright. Police say robbery appears to be the motive in both shootings.
News of the shootings bothered Patrick Bean, who owns a barber shop near 49th and Center.
"It's quite a lot of ruckus going on around there. Something needs to be done. I had a customer come in the other day and she said there was a lot of shooting going on," Bean said.
"Stop the Violence" yard signs freckled lawns in the area near 48th and Wright. Mark Knowles says he tries to stay inside as much as possible.
"Enough is enough, right? Man, I would hope that would get to people and change the minds and hearts of these young individuals out here committing these crimes," Knowles said.
Police say they're looking for two suspects in connection to the Saturday morning shootings. They're described as African-American teenage boys -- one with dreadlocks.
Police say all of these shooting victims are expected to survive their injuries.
