MILWAUKEE -

Milwaukee police are investigating four apparently unrelated deaths and a series of five nonfatal shootings that happened in a nine-hour span overnight.

In the first case, a juvenile suspect is in custody for allegedly stabbing and killing a 25-year-old relative Wednesday evening.

Then, just before midnight, a shooting in a barbershop left an 18-year-old man dead and a 21-year-old man with non-life-threatening injuries. A 26-year-old man is in custody.

About an hour later, a 34-year-old man was shot dead inside a home. No suspects are in custody in that case.

Soon afterward two men in their 20s were shot and injured in a street. In separate shootings, a 52-year-old man and 17-year-old boy also suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are also investigating the death of a 3-month-old infant.

Williams on Wednesday morning denied two key defense motions in the Freddie Gray case -- both the motion to dismiss the case for alleged prosecutorial misconduct and the motion to recuse prosecutor Marilyn Mosby from the case. The pretrial hearing came almost five months after Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury while being transported in a police van. These are the six officers and their charges.
