All three victims were said to have non-life-threatening injuries.

Milwaukee police said one suspect, a 29-year-old male, was in custody.

First responders, including mounted police, were in the area as road closures were in effect. At least one ambulance was spotted leaving the scene.

The shooting reportedly took place near Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Highland Avenue.

Reports from the scene indicated the shooting happened at around 9.30pm, right after the game ended.

Fans exiting the arena reported seeing a stampede of people running following the gunfire. Other reports stated that fans exiting the arena were forced back inside for safety.

Another shooting was reported hours after the first, near Water Street and Juneau Avenue. An unconfirmed number of people have been shot, with police responding to that scene as well.

Police later confirmed three people were shot, including a 16-year-old

Deer District is home to a number of restaurants and shops near the Fiserv Forum, where the Bucks play.

A watch party was happening in the district, with fans lining the streets to watch the NBA playoff game.

The Bucks reportedly set a capacity limit of 11,000 fans for the watch party.

Fans reportedly had to pass through metal detectors to get onto the plaza for the watch party. But the shooting occurred just east of the plaza.

The Bucks lost to the Boston Celtics by a score of 108-95.

A spokesperson for the Bucks released a statement following news of the shooting, saying, “The incident took place outside of the Deer District area. We direct all questions to the Milwaukee Police Department.”

The conference semifinals series is tied at three games each. A series-deciding game seven will be played on Sunday afternoon.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
