Neighbor statement, Milwaukee shooting leaves teen dead, 5 young women injured
I’m so shocked I couldn’t go to work,” an unidentified neighbor said. Another neighbor claims that crimes like this happen often. “It’s been happening every night,” Linda Middleman told Fox 6. “Shooting. Shooting. Shooting. Little kids and it’s really sad, and I think something needs to be done about it.” Larry Middleman added: “When is this all going to stop? When something like this happens, I’m not surprised.”
Patterson’s sister, Mari, said her brother was trying to break up a fight when he was shot. I just remember looking down the street and my brother was on the ground, and I held him for as long as I could,” she told CBS 58, adding that she was one of five women injured in the shooting. A sophomore at Milwaukee Excellence Charter School, Patterson’s loved ones described him as a “smart” and “good kid,” the outlet reports. “Going to sleep and your son is alive and waking up and never seeing him again, that’s something you don’t wish on your enemy,” Patterson’s mother, Tiera Carter, told.
The family also created a GoFundMe page to help cover funeral costs.
