Milwaukee mass murder continues city’s homicide crisis.
Five people were found shot execution-style in a house in Milwaukee along North 21st Street, sources told Wisconsin Right Now.
The call came in just before 3:30 p.m. on January 23, 2022. Milwaukee police found five bodies, some in the upstairs of the home and some in the basement, the sources said.
It’s unclear how long the bodies were there.
The home is located in the 2500 block of North 21st St. The police were responding to a welfare check. The bodies were of adults, all different ages, sources said.
Homicide was already up 13% in Milwaukee, with nine homicides recorded in 2022, coming on the heels of two record-setting years, according to the city’s crime dashboard.
This is a developing story, and police have not put out an official statement yet. Wisconsin Right Now has asked MPD for comment.
