Milwaukee June 19 shooting: Police arrest 15-year-old single shooter

Milwaukee Police say they have apprehended the individual they believe to be the sole perpetrator of the shooting incident which occurred shortly after the June 19th festivities ended on Monday, June 19th.

The incident happened near Martin Luther King Jr. and Chambers, where six teenagers were shot and injured. Milwaukee police quickly responded to the scene around 4:20 p.m., while a large gathering of people remained in the area after the city’s June 19 event ended at 4 p.m.

In a statement released Thursday, Milwaukee police confirmed the arrest of another 16-year-old man believed to be the lone shooter in the incident.

The statement initially mentioned that criminal proceedings for all those arrested were ongoing.

However, a later correction issued by police clarified that the sole alleged shooter was in fact 15 years old.

Earlier, police told FOX3 News that a 19-year-old male victim had been arrested in connection with the Juneteenth Day shooting.

In a previous statement, police said their preliminary investigation suggested a 17-year-old man was also involved as a shooter, but they were actively looking for other unknown suspects.

It is important to note that this investigation is ongoing and subject to change as new information emerges.
