Whatever the final tally is, Milwaukee County’s medical examiner says 2021 will be a record-year for deaths.
The Medical Examiner’s Office yesterday said there have been 220 homicides in Milwaukee County so far. Most of those, 192, have come in the city of Milwaukee. Both of those numbers are likely to jump between now and January 1st. The M-E is not saying just how everyone died, but Milwaukee Police say it has been a record year for shootings in the city.
