MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A gunman opened fire with an assault weapon on a group of people in Milwaukee, a day after the city's police chief testified on Capitol Hill in support of an assault weapons ban.
It happened just before 2:30 p.m. on Thursday on Milwaukee's north side. After a police chase, the suspect ran away from his car and was chased by a police dog.
Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn says two people were wounded in the shooting. Flynn told a news conference near the shooting scene that a man and a woman struck by gunfire were taken to a hospital.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Flynn says the suspect also was taken to a hospital to be treated for dog bite wounds.
