Milwaukee police: Shots fired on south side, over 100 casings found

A barrage of bullets hit homes and cars on Milwaukee's south side early Saturday morning, June 25.

Police say, despite recovering more than 100 bullet casings at the scene, no one was injured near 17th and Scott. It was a scene one resident thought he'd only see in the movies.

"The bullets flew everywhere," said one neighbor who, fearing for his safety, asked to remain anonymous.

"I never thought they were shots, I thought it was just fireworks," said Robert, another neighbor.
