GREENFIELD — The day after 24-year-old Andre Nicholson was shot and killed in the Third Ward, an activist group took to the streets.

Milwaukee Police say the shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. Sunday near Water and Buffalo Streets. Police say Nicholson was shot multiple times as he was leaving the bar, and investigators believe the shooting escalated from an argument.

Police say a 23-year-old suspect has turned himself in.

The shooting comes at a particularly violent time in Milwaukee, as law enforcement reports record-breaking homicide statistics.

Meanwhile the group met and marched in Greenfield. The group has marched for 193 straight days throughout Milwaukee, promoting justice and equality. Monday night they dedicated their march to Nicholson.

No one in the group said they knew Nicholson personally, but they say enough is enough.

"Every day it gets sadder and sadder, even with everything going on. You still got people doing things totally uncalled for, and they need to be held accountable for it," said Brandon Wilborn.

"We don’t want to grow up and have our kids go through stuff like this," said Rozz Rogers.
