MILWAUKEE — The vehicle occupants who fled from the Milwaukee Police Department on Thursday and caused a three-car crash in the 4000 block of West North Street also were involved in the shooting of three juveniles in the 4600 block of North 36th Street, MPD said Friday in a news release.

About 3:10 p.m. Thursday in the 4600 block of North 36th, a 13-year-old girl, a 14- year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl sustained non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and were brought a local hospital. A 14-year-old boy was arrested at the scene.

The victims were uncooperative, police said.

About 3:30 p.m. Thursday, MPD attempted to stop a vehicle occupied by a wanted person.

The vehicle reportedly refused to pull over for police when signaled to do so and subsequently crashed, causing a three-car crash on West North.

One of the vehicles involved was a school bus. The occupants of the bus (a woman and a 13-year-old boy) sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at a local hospital.

The occupant of the pickup truck that was involved sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was brought to a local hospital.

Four passengers in the vehicle that fled from police were taken into custody and transported to local hospitals. One of the occupants sustained life-threatening injuries.

This is an ongoing investigation.
