MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee police need your help in their search for the person(s) who shot 13-year-old Nevaeha Ware Saturday morning, Jan. 9 on the city's north side. Relatives, on Monday, Jan. 11, tell FOX6 News it's not the first time Ware's family has experienced a tragic loss like this one.
The homicide happened near 65th Street and Congress Street around 6:45 a.m. Saturday.
Police said Ware was a passenger in a vehicle when the shooter(s) approached in another vehicle and several shots were fired. Ware was driven to a hospital, where she died from her injuries.
"No child in our city should be shot or killed," said Reggie Moore, director of Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention. "That’s absolutely unacceptable."
On Monday, officials revealed they are looking for a dark-colored vehicle with tinted windows.
Ware's sisters, who did not want to talk with FOX6 News on camera, said they also lost a brother, Qwaishaun Henning, to gun violence in 2017. The family has set up a GoFundMe.com account to raise money for Nevaeha Ware's funeral expenses.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS or P3 Tips App.
