MILWAUKEE --Four people are dead after three unrelated shootings overnight in the city of Milwaukee. 
The first shooting happened late Wednesday night near 36th Street and Thurston Avenue, while the two other shootings happened early Thursday morning at 52nd Street and Green Tree Road and 107th Street and Appleton Avenue. 
"The community is just shocked, it's unbelievable," Tony Walker said. "It's a sad situation especially when kids are involved."
36-year-old Reggie Brown and a 38-year-old Milwaukee woman were found dead in a home in Walker's neighborhood. Two kids were also inside the home, but they were not harmed.
"They got executed in the bed," Walker said. "Nothing like this has ever happens [here]."
However, residents in other neighborhoods can't say the same. 
"I used to be on the couch and I'd hear [gunshots]," a Milwaukee native recounted. 
The woman did not  want to give her name, but she said the increase in violence in her neighborhood on the city's north side makes her uneasy. 
"I'm sad that this city is so violent," she said. "I love it here... but it's [so] scary, it makes you want to move."
According to the Milwaukee Police Department, 130 homicides have been documented this year. The details of the three shootings incidents are still under investigation.
