Shooting breaks out as Milwaukee church parishioners leave service

A church service at Reformation Church of Holiness on Chambers and 21st streets in Milwaukee was just getting let out Sunday afternoon when witnesses describe seeing a shootout down the block.”Upon them coming out of the church a car pulled right here and began to fire at another car that was behind them. There was a massive shooting right here,” Bishop Henry Kilpatrick told WISN 12 News’ Courtney Sisk. “I began to push the people back on inside, and tell them to hit the floor, get down on the floor, and they got down on the floor.” Church leaders said they hope there can be more police presence, and a faster response in the future. No one from the church was injured. WISN 12 News cameras spotted more than 20 bullet casings on the corner, with more down the block.”It sounded like a full on shootout,” another witness said. They believed people in separate cars were shooting at each other. WISN 12 News asked Milwaukee police if anyone was injured, or if anyone is in custody, but have yet to hear back.
