MPD: 3-year-old boy fatally shoots himself near 31st and Michigan

“A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection to this incident.

Criminal charges will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the upcoming days.

‘When something like this happens, it has a far reaching and often pervasive impact. The trauma of watching it, experiencing it, losing that person, hearing about what happened, can be devastating and overwhelming for many people and that's completely understandable,’ said Arnitta Holliman, ReCast Manager for Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention.

She says anyone who works with or knows a child who has experienced violence or a traumatic event, should reach out to the Trauma Response Team. The number is 414-257-7621.”

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee police say a 3-year-old boy was fatally shot near 31st and Michigan on Saturday, May 8.Authorities say a child obtained a firearm and unintentionally shot himself Saturday

Our Story

Violence – both interpersonal and structural – poses a serious threat to the health, safety, and well-being of Milwaukee residents. The injury, pain, and trauma that results from violence can severely impact the physical and mental well-being and sense of worth of individuals and communities.

Employing a public health approach, the Blueprint focuses on prevention of violence before it occurs, as well as intervention efforts after violence has occurred to reduce its impact and prevent future perpetration and victimization.
