MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Five people are dead following a fatal shooting near 12th and Hadley in Milwaukee on Monday, April 27. 

Milwaukee police said the victims range in age from 14-41. 

Authorities say all of the victims knew each other. 

Officials said they received a call this morning from a man saying his family was dead. That man is now in custody. 

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was at the scene following the tragedy. He said there is a child survivor in this incident, who he believes is 3 years old. 

"There’s a lot of stress,” said Mayor Barrett. “The living conditions here-this is obviously a poor neighborhood and I don’t know how many people lived in this house. I don’t know if there was more than one family. But again, this is a stressful period and we’ll have to wait and see exactly what happened here.”

I don't understand why the mayor said "this is obviously a poor neighborhood". What does that have to do with anything?? Is anyone else disturbed by that comment??

He said nothing wrong or untrue. The man was showing empathy. Something wrong with that?

Do Black Lives Matter? Yes, if a Police bullet is involved... NO!!!, if it's a Black on Black shooting.

19 out of every 20 shooting in Milwaukee have a Black victim. Less than half of these shooting is ever solved.

Representative LaKeshia Myers (Milwaukee) thinks White people should be arrested for protesting the Safe At Home mandate.

Can anyone provide a new example of Black elected officials that, other than lip flapping, have done anything to deal with this Black Problem?

One Black alderman wants to eliminate plastic bags at stores on the north side...

I believe that Black Lives Matter!!! I want the shooting to stop. We don't need more jails/prisons. We need effective/BIBLICAL punishment for gun crimes, regardless of race, age, or gender.

Demerits and Timeouts don't deter gun violence. After the third gun related conviction, a hand should be amputated and the criminal released into the community for all to see. Repeat if required.

Innocent Black Lives are being lost every day. Black on Black gun violence is a problem in every urban city in the USA.

sounds like a tragic family/domestic situation but until we know more info its impossible to speculate on cause or who to blame besides the assailant ... sounds like race wasnt a factor - but no matter the reason it is very sad
