This isn't a Milwaukee story, but interesting.  Last weekend squads from all 5 precincts responded to  a shots fired call which was on the block our office is on.  130 casings were found within 2 blocks.  We found over 30 on our property, and our building was grazed.  The neighbor biz across the street has security video of shooters on our sidewalk and people laying on the ground to avoid gunfire.  Amazingly, no one was hit (or reported an injury). 

The ATF is parking a squad in our parking lot this weekend to deter more activity.  They must suspect something is up for this weekend.

Safety Update: Credit card skimmer recovered near campus
 
The Marquette University Police Department has recovered a credit card skimming device from the 7-Eleven convenience store located at 17th St. and West Wells St. The device is believed to have been in place for approximately six weeks. If you have made a purchase at the store in the last six weeks and swiped your credit or debit card, MUPD encourages you to monitor your account closely and change your PIN.
 
Only card swipe transactions may have been affected and not tap transactions.
 
MUPD offers the following safety tips to safeguard your credit card and personal information from being stolen by skimming machines:
Make purchases with chip-enabled cards.
Pay with cash instead of plastic.
Use an online or mobile payment service such as Apple Pay, Google Pay or PayPal.
Set up alerts to monitor activity on your credit and debit cards.
Regularly review your credit and debit card statements to check for suspicious transactions.
Pick gas pumps in well-lit areas within the line of sight of store employees. Scammers tend to install credit card skimming devices at pumps that are hard to see.
Avoid ATMs in out-of-the-way locations.
Go to another ATM or gas pump when you suspect the presence of a credit card skimmer.
 
If you observe any suspicious behavior or fear for your safety at any time, contact MUPD at (414) 288-1911 or through the mobile blue light feature on the Eagle Eye app.

Pre-pandemic I always made small purchases with cash ( not things like gas though). But then places actively wanted you to use plastic so I switched…🤷‍♀️

I once got my debit card skimmed from an actual bank ATM in Chicago.  That was super fun

I am very happy the cameras and MU police are there to keep the campus safe. Yet another time MU is highlighted on local news for crime "near" campus. Armed robbery and shooting are no big deal, I had a homeless person bother me on campus back in the early 80's.

I got robbed at gunpoint in Wauwatosa 15 years ago. Bad things happened more than the past 5 years. And more than just in Milwaukee.

Thanks for sharing that incident. I am thankful that you feel safe and can look past such an event. Must have been in the “tough” part of Tosa because my old hood never had such activities.

sometimes it's nice to hear about issues BEFORE they hit the webpage...hope the students get a text alert so they may take extra precautions depending on where they are at the time.

It is funny that rocky would comment on how or why 4ever has access or follows the alerts from MU. He really misses the mark on a regular basis.
