Just nine days into 2021, reckless gunfire in Milwaukee led to a 13-year-old girl's death.
Now, Milwaukee Crime Stoppers is hoping you'll come forward with information that will put her killer behind bars. Nevaeha Ware was riding in the car with friends in the early morning hours of Jan. 9 near 65th and Congress. That's when gunfire erupted and came into the car Ware was riding in.
Milwaukee police say they are still trying to figure out if the shots came from another car or somewhere nearby. The people riding with Ware dropped her off at Aurora Hospital. Some stayed, some left. Now, Milwaukee police say they need those who left and the rest of the community to tell what they know, anonymously.
"The age of the victim in this case...we really encourage them to come forward and provide us with that information," said MPD Detective Michael Tanem.
