It’s another measure of Milwaukee’s violent year.
TMJ4 is reporting that Milwaukee’s non-fatal shooting total is nearly double what it was last year at this point. Numbers from the Milwaukee Police Department show there have been 153 shootings where someone didn’t die so far in 2021. Last year’s shooting total on April 1st was just 53 shootings. Milwaukee Police don’t have an explanation for the jump in shootings, but say many of them happen in the same neighborhoods between people who know each other.
