NOW: ’I saw him die right in front of me’: 21-year-old Illinois man killed in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- One man is dead and another man in custody after a shooting in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood Monday, May 28.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as 21-year-old Hunter Nachreiner of Woodstock, Illinois.

A man who witnessed the lifesaving measure performed on Nachreiner told CBS 58 it was a tragic scene as he saw the 21-year-old being pulled out of a car covered in blood.

Jones is still shaken by what he calls an unforgettable scene Monday night.

"It was something I hope I never have to see again," said Jones.

Home surveillance video captured by Jones shows Nachreiner being pulled out of a car surrounded by a group of people all trying to save his life after he was shot.

"Pretty much in a panic. One of them ran around to the driver's side of the car, tried to get him out of the car, and they got him up and then he went limp, down to the ground," said Jones.

Police have not said what led up to Monday's shooting.

But despite lifesaving measures, Nachreiner died at the scene.

Jones has lived in Riverwest for decades and said Monday's shooting is something he will never forget.

"I saw him die right in front of me, I never seen that before. I saw him alive and then dead, it happened within a matter of a minute," said Jones.

Police said a 21-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with the shooting.

Charges are being referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office.
