Milwaukee crimes leave at least 3 dead, 5 hurt

Published On: Nov 22 2012 03:59:45 PM CST

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.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
