MILWAUKEE - Weekend violence that has taken the life of a young teen has prompted action from Milwaukee's top cop, and mayor. 

Chief Flynn and Mayor Barrett were expected to speak Saturday afternoon, at an outdoor roll call of uniformed officers in district 5 at 24th and Burleigh at 3:00pm. 

A 14 year old boy was shot to death, and three others were injured when someone opened fire on a crowd in the 29-hundred block of north 12th Street just before midnight.
