MILWAUKEE - One person has died, and a teenager has gone to a hospital after a late night shooting in Bay View which Milwaukee Police describe as not being a random act.

The double shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night in a home near the corner of East Potter and East Russell Streets.

Milwaukee Police say that Bruce Jerzey, 38, was pronounced dead at that location after being shot.

The teenager, 15, was recovering Wednesday from injuries that were not said to be life threatening.

A police spokeswoman said that the victims knew each other, and that the home where the shooting happened was a "house of past drug investigations."

Police have no one in custody related to the shootings, but they have a number of leads.
