MILWAUKEE - A gunman opened fire with an assault weapon on a group of people in Milwaukee, a day after the city's police chief testified on Capitol Hill in support of an assault weapons ban.
The shootings happened just before 2:30 p.m. Thursday on a street on Milwaukee's north side. That led to a police chase that ended when the suspect fled from his vehicle and was run down by a police dog.
Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said two people were wounded in the shooting. Flynn told a news conference near the shooting scene that a man and a woman struck by gunfire were taken to a hospital.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Flynn said the suspect also was taken to a hospital to be treated for dog bite wounds.
