3 hurt in shootings during Milwaukee NBA finals celebrations

Three people were shot early Wednesday during a wild night of partying in Milwaukee, where thousands took to the streets to celebrate the Bucks’ NBA championship win over the Phoenix Suns — the team’s first since 1971.

Both shootings were across the Milwaukee River from Fiserv Forum, where nearly 17,000 fans watched the 105-98 Game 6 win — and about 65,000 more cheered at an outdoor watch party. 

The shootings happened around 12:40 a.m. at two locations near Water Street, one of the city’s prime nightlife thoroughfares.
