MILWAUKEE — The FBI is now offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of suspects behind the shooting at the Serenity Funeral Home on Wednesday, which left seven people injured.

A preliminary investigation from Milwaukee police found that an ongoing feud between "two separate parties" led to the shooting. No suspects have been identified, according to MPD.

As TMJ4 News reported, all seven victims are in stable condition and are expected to survive. The victims are a 48-year-old woman, a 26-year-old woman, a 24-year-old woman, a 29-year-old man, a 26-year-old man, a 24-year-old man and a 20-year-old man.

The shooting happened around 12:45 p.m. at the funeral home, located at 4217 W. Fond du Lac Ave.

Cedric Guy, owner of Serenity Funeral Home, said there were about 100 mourners at the funeral home at the time. They were there for the funeral of Braxton Taylor, the 26-year-old victim of a Sept. 17 shooting.

Mayor Tom Barrett called the shooting “an example of the insanity we’re seeing” with the number of guns on Milwaukee streets.
