Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Father shot multiple times alongside daughter in vehicle
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's a Christmastime miracle that shouldn't have happened. Someone shot a man seven times with his 5-year-old daughter in the car and somehow both survived. Now, Milwaukee Crime Stoppers need your help to find the person who pulled the trigger.
The shooting happened Christmas Eve around 7:45 p.m., near 27th and Auer. A 36-year-old man was dropping his girlfriend off at work when someone rolled up on his car and unloaded 18 shots into the vehicle.
Seven of those bullets hit the man; he was shot in the head and torso and lived.
During the shooting, his 5-year-old daughter was inside the car and wasn't hit.
Police say the victim has a criminal past so they believe he was targeted.
Somehow no one saw what happened and there's no video. Now it's up to you to help get the reckless shooters off the streets.
"If you think about it 18 casings that's essentially taking a handgun and emptying it into this car. So you can pretty much say the intent was to kill this man if you fire 18 shots at anybody. It's a miracle that he survived," said Captain Craig Sarnow, Milwaukee Police Department.
If you know anything about this shooting investigation, you're asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 414-224-8477. If your tip leads to an arrest, you can get up to $1,000 in a reward.
