Three people were shot in downtown Milwaukee after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals playoff series between the Bucks and Boston Celtics.
The Milwaukee Fire Department said authorities took two people to the hospital, a 30-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl, and a third person checked into the hospital. All three people have non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say a 29-year-old man is in custody. Witnesses told WTMJ-TV they saw a fight outside a bar after the basketball game.
Videos shared on social media showed hundreds of people leaving the Deer District fan area shortly after the match ended. Earlier in the evening, the Bucks said 11,000 people were in the Deer district.
Milwaukee police recorded the intersection of North MLK Drive and West Highland Avenue, according to a tweet from a reporter for WDJT-TV (Channel 58).
Live video released by WISN-TV (channel 12) showed a man placed in the back of an ambulance near the intersection of MLK Drive and Highland Avenue.
A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter overheard several Fiserv Forum employees saying they weren’t allowed to leave until they got the all clear.
Police are investigating what led to the shooting.
“The incident occurred outside of the Deer District area. We direct all questions to the Milwaukee Police Department,” Bucks spokesman Barry Baum said.
