MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Police spent early Wednesday morning investigating a homicide on the city's northwest side.
They searched around a vehicle found next to a building near the corner of North 50th Street and West Hampton Avenue just after 1:00 a.m.
Firefighters found the vehicle's driver, a 30-year-old Milwaukee man, dead "from what appeared to be a puncture wound to the upper torso," according to police.
Witnesses saw the driver "driving erratically" before the vehicle went across the median on Hampton and slammed into the side of an apartment building.
Spokesman Sgt. Mark Stanmeyer says that they're trying to figure out if the driver was shot while he was sitting in the vehicle, or before he got inside of it.
