MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Police tell TODAY'S TMJ4 that a woman has been found dead after a shooting on the city's northwest side.

According to police, the shooting death happened near the corner of North 87th Street and West Mill Road.

Authorities believe the shooting happened just after midnight in an apartment there.

Police said later Wednesday morning that the victim was 26 years old.
