3 shot outside Milwaukee Bucks game. Hours later, 17 others are shot a few blocks away

Ten people were taken into custody in the downtown shooting and nine firearms were recovered, according to the police capt. Warren Allen of Milwaukee.

The 17 people who were shot ranged in age from 15 to 47, Allen said.

The shooting near the arena left two men, 26 and 29, and a 16-year-old girl injured, according to Allen. Everyone is expected to survive, he said.

“A 19-year-old man has been taken into custody in connection with this incident,” Allen said. “The charges are pending review by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.”

That incident occurred around 9:12 PM near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Highland Avenue, about a block from the Bucks Court on Fiserv Forum.

Police have not released the names of those involved or a possible motive.

The Bucks lost to the Celtics on Friday night — 108-95 — forcing a seventh game on Sunday to determine who will play Miami in the Eastern Conference finals.
