MILWAUKEE — The 42-year-old man who was killed in a crash Saturday on the city's north side was identified Monday.
Jermaine D. Bohannon was identified by the Milwaukee Police Department.
Two other people were injured after the crash and a shooting at 37th and Locust.
Police say one driver was chasing another, and shots were fired into the car being chased.
This car lost control, crashing into a tree, killing Bohannon and seriously injuring a 28-year-old woman in the backseat.
A 41-year-old man in the fron seat was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound.
Police are still looking for suspects and a motive, as the Medical Examiner's Office investigates the death as a homicide.
Joyce Wilson was heartbroken to see the scene outside her home.
“When I get here and see the young man laying there you know my heart sank,” she said. “My feelings for all of this is all over the place. All I can do is keep praying for the families.”
She left moments before the crash and came back to find one of the cars mangled in the middle of the road.
"Every time you turn on the TV you know this is what’s going on, a car chase ends in catastrophe, another life is lost, another one is wounded.” — Janis Butler
Janis Butler was visiting her grandchildren and concerned to see crime tape in the neighborhood.
“I feel bad. I’m nervous on the inside. My stomach is knotted up,” Butler said.
Butler said in general, reckless activity is becoming all too common.
“Every time you turn on the TV you know this is what’s going on, a car chase ends in catastrophe, another life is lost, another one is wounded,” Butler said.
For Ernest Godbolt, the problem isn’t with those living in the area.
“It’s not too much the neighborhood that’s really bad. It’s the people that come through the neighborhood making it like a nuisance,” Godbolt said.
Now he and others in the neighborhood want things to change.
“We need to come together as a community and reach back out to the young people,” Butler said.
“I need it to stop. We’re losing our next generation,” Wilson added.
An autopsy was scheduled Monday.
