Waukesha police and fire crews both responded finding a 40-year-old man fatally wounded shortly after 8 p.m.
More than twelve hours later, the skies were clear but the scene around Albert Street and East North was still tied off and filled with police cars.
"People shooting other people. No need for that," said Andy Evan, lives nearby.
The same view on a different day, Scott Congemi says he walked toward the scene last night after hearing several shots.
"So I came down here, I walked down here and they were roping everything off and all of a sudden there were like fifteen squad cars on the scene already," said Congemi.
Waukesha police say they found an injured man when they arrived. The 40-year-old was taken to Waukesha Memorial Hospital and died.
The crime scene extends from Albert Street east to a stretch of green space between North and Paul Street.
"It instantly registered as a gunshot to me," said Evan.
