MILWAUKEE -- A 23-year-old woman and a one-year-old boy were shot and injured in one of two shootings Monday night, April 18th.

Neighbors said there were a lot of people outside at the time, including children. Neighbors said they heard three or four gunshots.

"It's sad. Every time you walk away from someone, you have to say 'be safe,'" Willie Smith said.

Smith said he didn't have to be there when the shooting happened to feel its impact.

"It's sad for a one-year-old. People talk about taking away the guns and all that, but that will never happened because there's too many out here," Smiths aid.
