MILWAUKEE (AP) — Five men were injured in four separate shootings that happened in Milwaukee on Saturday morning, and police had no immediate word on any arrests.
Police say the first shooting happened at 8:06 a.m., when multiple suspects fired several shots outside on the 1300 block of W. Concordia Avenue and hit two Milwaukee men, ages 50 and 39. Police say both men suffered injuries that were not life-threatening and they were treated at a local hospital.
Less than 30 minutes later, a 39-year-old Milwaukee man walked into a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening. The circumstances and location of that shooting were being investigated.
The third shooting happened at 10:12 a.m., on the 2800 block of W. Ruby Avenue. Police say a 30-year-old Milwaukee man suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.
Just five minutes later, a 40-year-old Milwaukee man walked into a hospital with injuries from another shooting. That man suffered serious injuries but was stable, police said. The location and circumstances of that shooting were also under investigation.
Police said they were seeking unknown suspects in all four incidents, and they have asked anyone with information to call authorities.
