As Milwaukee police search for a shooter, neighbors said they fear for their safety; FOX6 is not identifying them. They don't know the victims and want the violence to end.

"We really need to stop. Whatever it’s all about, they need to stop and put the guns down," another neighbor said. "I really don’t know what the solution is in Milwaukee, but they just have to think it might be their family one time. They have to stop."
