It happened Thursday night just before 11:30 p.m. at an apartment building on the 4200 block of North 27th Street.
The name of the man who was shot but survived has not been released. Milwaukee police did, however, release the names of the two homicide victims, 20-year-old Malyk Smith and 34-year-old Romale Richardson.
Public records show Smith lived at the apartment where the double homicide happened.
TODAY'S TMJ4 spoke with Rita Evans. She has three children with Richardson.
“I’ve been doing a lot of crying real life like I just don’t understand. Why is there so much killing? I don’t really understand what’s going on,” said Evans.
