One dead, four wounded after shooting in Atkinson Park

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner confirmed Saturday, September 29th one man was killed and another four were injured after a shooting at Atkinson Park, near 9th and Atkinson.

The Associated Press reports the four individuals shot and injured are expected to survive. They reportedly range in age from 15-23.

Milwaukee police have not yet released the names of any victims, though the family of one victim told FOX6 News 22-year-old Alexander Cross was killed.

The Cross family said just before 7:00 p.m. Saturday, Cross was playing basketball with a group at Atkinson Park. Cross' family said a group rushed the court and began firing their weapons.

Hours later, the entire perimeter of the park was taped off as Milwaukee police officers continued to gather evidence.

Cross' family told FOX6 News Cross was an honest man who worked two jobs to support his younger siblings.

"He wasn't no gang banger. He was a good young man. He didn't bother nobody," Ludie Cross, Cross' aunt said.

Cross' family said he was a graduate of Vincent High School in Milwaukee. They said he had ambitions of one day becoming an entertainer.

No one has been taken into custody in connection with this shooting.
