Three Milwaukee teens shot during basketball game


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- More gun violence in Milwaukee as three more teenagers were shot after a basketball game got out of hand.

Authorities tells WISN 12 News the victims are 15, 16 and 17-years-old. They will all survive.

The boys were playing basketball when one person got into an argument with someone. Police say that second person left for awhile, then came back with a gun and fired several shots.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett met with the mother of one of the victims, who says there are just too many guns on the street.

Milwaukee Police Chief told WISN they're making progress, though. "In two months alone our officers have taken 553 firearms off the streets of this city. In August alone they've made 2,000 arrests."
