Seven people were wounded in a shooting at a funeral service for a homicide victim in Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
Acting Milwaukee Police Chief Michael Brunson said the victims were in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
The wounded included three women and four men, and they ranged in age from 20 to 48, according to the police.
About 100 mourners had gathered before gunfire erupted from a car that pulled up to the Serenity Funeral Home, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The Milwaukee Police Department said cops responded to the hail of bullets around 12:45 p.m. local time. The funeral home sits on the 4200 block of West Fond Du Lac Ave., about 5 miles northwest of downtown Milwaukee.
Cops said they were investigating.
“This is an untenable situation,” Brunson told reporters. “This brazen act that was done in broad daylight is just unacceptable in our city.”
