MILWAUKEE — Five victims have been found dead in Milwaukee.

The breaking information was provided to News2 from Milwaukee Fire Department officials.

Police were called about 3:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon to a home near North 21st and West Wright streets for a welfare check.

When officers arrived, they said they found four men and a woman dead.

It’s not clear how long they were dead when their bodies were found.

Their names were not released.

Police have not made any arrests or said how they victims were related.

No suspect information was released.

Investigators were still at the scene collecting evidence.

“The murders discovered today on a residential block in the heart of our city are horrific,” Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson said in a statement. “First, I offer my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Whatever the circumstances, we must share the grief of those who have lost loved ones.

“It is important not to feel numbed by the ongoing violence in our community. A horrible crime has again occurred, and it is not a movie or a fictional account. These victims died in our city, in one of our neighborhoods.

“We remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce violence. We will achieve that through strengthened and improved law enforcement, through community intervention, and through a renewed commitment to prevention. Again, we can never accept murderous violence as routine, and we must together recommit ourselves to our shared responsibility to find solutions and make our city safer.”

Anyone with information on the homicides was asked to call Milwaukee police.
