2 killed, 3 hurt in shooting at crowded Milwaukee park

The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE- A man opened fire at a group of people Monday evening at a park packed with Memorial Day picnickers, killing two and wounding three, police said.

Police were looking for the man, who argued with the victims at the park about 7:30 p.m., fired shots and fled in a vehicle, said police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz.

Witnesses said they heard at least 10 shots, prompting the hundreds of people in South Shore Park on the Lake Michigan shore to scatter, screaming.

The shooting happened next to a playground, Schwartz said.

"It was a very chaotic scene, a lot of people running around when we came," Schwartz said.

Two males were killed, she said. Three people were injured, two critically.
