Milwaukee triple shooting: 1 dead, 2 critically injured on south side
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee police are investigating a triple shooting that left one person dead and two others critically injured near 6th and Cleveland early Sunday morning, Feb. 27. It happened around 2:30 a.m.
A 29-year-old Milwaukee man was pronounced deceased at the scene. A 30-year-old man and a 52-year-old man -- both from Milwaukee -- were taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Neighbors said gunfire is normal in the area, and they want it to stop.
"It was literally like eight shots," said Breanna Carey. "No hesitation at all."
Carey was grabbing a food order outside around 2:30 a.m., just minutes before she heard gunshots.
"That’s the scariest part because anything could have happened while I was right there, had I been outside," said Carey. "It could have been anything."

The shooting happened outside La Pasadita Bar.
"It’s building up more and more crime, more shootings," said Andy Rosales. "Basically, every weekend I can put the clock on and set my alarm to it."
Rosales has lived in the area for 20 years. He says he hears a shooting every weekend, and the crime is something he's become accustomed to.
"I counted them. I usually count. I was like, ‘Okay it’s a six-shooter,’ or so forth," said Rosales.
While neighbors feel like it's become the norm to hear shootings, there's nothing normal about it.
"Taking somebody’s life is permanent, somebody’s son, somebody’s daughter, somebody’s person," said Carey. "It’s a loved one. Now, somebody else is suffering from your anger."
