MILWAUKEE — A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a shooting that killed another boy of the same age and left five young women injured, Milwaukee Police said Wednesday.

News reports did not say what charges, if any, have been filed against the teen.

Milwaukee Police said they responded to a shooting at around 11:25 p.m. Monday night near the 1400 block of W. Concordia Ave.

A 15-year-old male, identified by the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office as Davion Patterson, was pronounced dead at the scene from his injuries. Five others were taken to local hospitals for non-fatal injuries, including a 22-year-old female, an 18-year-old female, a 21-year-old female, a 19-year-old female and another 22-year-old female. 

Patterson’s mother, Tiera Carter, told WTMJ-TV that her two children went to help others who had been in a fight.

“He was trying to break up a fight,” Carter said. “He wasn’t a street kid.”

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that police misidentified the 19-year-old victim as a woman, but that victim was a man. The error has been corrected. (March 22, 2023)
