Shots fired during Bucks celebrations downtown; 3 wounded

FOX 6 Milwaukee 22 July, 2021 - 12:01pm

Milwaukee police are investigating two separate shooting incidents that occurred early Wednesday morning, July 21.

Bucks celebrations turned violent downtown. Milwaukee police are investigating two separate shooting incidents that occurred early Wednesday morning, July 21. Three people were wounded as a result of the shootings – and police say two men, ages 18 and 25, were taken into custody.

Witnesses heard at least 12 shots fired as thousands celebrated at Water Street bars into the early hours on Wednesday.

Around 12:42 a.m. in the area of Water and Knapp, a 22-year-old man was shot. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. 

"I think we have incidents in Milwaukee on Water Street all the time," said Jeff Toboyek, a Bucks fan. "I think Water street is actually an ongoing problem. And I think it could have been a lot worse."

Milwaukee police are investigating another shooting that took place simultaneously at 12:42 a.m. near Water and Juneau. The first victim, a 19-year-old Milwaukee woman, sustained non-life-threatening injuries.  The second victim, a 32-year-old man also sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

"Sports is such a unifying topic that it really should be bringing people together, rather than splitting people apart," said Anthony Casada, who celebrated downtown.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS or P3 Tips App to remain anonymous.

The celebrations downtown came as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns 105-98 to win the series 4-2. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo ended one of the greatest NBA Finals ever with 50 points — and a championship Milwaukee waited 50 years to win again.

Exactly three weeks after suffering a knee injury that appeared to put his future in doubt, Giannis Antetokounmpo carried the Milwaukee Bucks to their first championship in half a century.

Moments after the Bucks won the NBA championship on their home court, fans were able to get their hands on championship gear at the Pro Shop in the Deer District.

Bucks players, coaches, owners, alumni and staff will take part in the parade, which will begin at the intersection of E. Wisconsin Ave. and N. Prospect Ave. The parade will then proceed west on E. Wisconsin Ave. before turning north onto N. Water St. From there, the route will continue on N. Water St. to E. Knapp St. before ending on E. Knapp St. at the Milwaukee River.

Following the parade, a championship celebration will be held in Deer District with Bucks players, coaches, owners and executives taking the stage. The championship celebration will take place in Block 6 of Deer District, which is located directly north of Fiserv Forum between Vel R. Phillips Ave. and Fifth St. The stage will be setup on the north side of Block 6 near the intersection of Fifth St. and McKinley Ave, with viewing areas and screens setup throughout Deer District. The anticipated start time of the championship celebration is 12:30 p.m.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will also attend the championship celebration in Deer District, with Bucks sign language interpreter Brice Christianson providing American Sign Language for full inclusion for deaf fans.

“I guarantee I'll be at the parade. What I said to my staff is tomorrow is all Bucks, all the time," Barrett told CBS 58. "We need to celebrate the Bucks because they've been such a positive force here. They brought this city together. They've given people something to cheer about and I think we're all happy about that."

The Bucks are expecting hundreds of thousands of people to line the parade route and pack into the Deer District. There will be screens throughout the Deer District for viewing, according to the Chief of Marketing Dustin Godsey.

"We will have screens all the way down, more screens even than we had last night, all the way down from McKinley, as far to the the south end of the the former Bradley Center lot," Godsey said.

The city is prohibiting people from camping out or reserving spots overnight. The Milwaukee Department of Public Works said they might remove any furniture place out overnight.

"Essentially when daybreak comes, that's probably the good time to start thinking about scoping out a location and setting down for the later day parade," DPW Spokesperson Brian DeNeve said.

Most nearby bars on Old World Third St, and along the route on Water St plan to open early for fans.

"It's the most surreal experience," Duke's on Water manager Lucy Chamberlain said. "I mean we haven't seen this obviously since before I was born. So we're really excited to come out tomorrow."
