MILWAUKEE, WI – The bodies of six adults were discovered by police in Milwaukee performing a welfare check Sunday afternoon, with the incident suspected to be a horrific case of mass murder, officials say.
According to Milwaukee police, officers entered the home – located near North 21st Street and West Wright Street – at approximately 3:45 p.m. and initially found five dead bodies, four male and one female.
However, on Monday the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office announced on Twitter that another male body had been found at the scene, bringing the death toll connected to the residence to six. The identities of the victims – who were scheduled to receive autopsies on Monday – have not yet been released by authorities.

According to a Sunday evening press conference regarding the incident, Milwaukee Assistant Police Chief Paul Formolo confirmed that the victims had been killed by gunshot wounds inflicted by “unknown suspects” and that there is currently no known motive for the deaths.
Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson responded to the killings on Sunday with a written statement released via Twitter, calling them “horrific.”
“The murders discovered today on a residential block in the heart of our city are horrific,” he said. “I offer my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Whatever the circumstances, we must share the grief o those who have lost loved ones.”
Johnson also addressed the skyrocketing violence that has plagued Milwaukee County recently; 2021 saw a record-breaking 220 murders taking place, according to a tweet by the medical examiner’s office.
“It is important not to feel numbed by the ongoing violence in our community,” Johnson said. “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.”
