1 dead, 4 injured in Milwaukee park shooting
Shooting happened Saturday night
MILWAUKEE — One man is dead and four other people injured after a shooting at a Milwaukee park.
22-year-old Alexander Cross died on the court. His brother blamed gang members for the violence.
Police say all five of the victims were shot. The four who were injured are expected to survive. They range in age from 15 to 23 years old.
The shooting happened Saturday night at Atkinson Park on the city’s north side. Police said it might have been prompted by an earlier argument at the park.
Cross’s family spoke out on Sunday. “We’re not understanding what happened,” relative Minnie Cross said. “He worked two jobs. He’s a taxpayer, you understand what I’m saying? Taxpayer and he had to be killed like this. He didn’t deserve this.”
Milwaukee police are still looking for the shooter.
