MILWAUKEE -- Three people were shot while gambling outside of a home on Milwaukee's north side Tuesday night.

It happened at 11:20 p.m. in the 3200 Block of N. 12th Street.

Police believe the suspect -- who had been losing -- left the scene and returned a short time later with a handgun, demanding his money back.

When the victims refused,  the suspect began to shoot, striking three victims -- a 26-year-old female and two males ages 36 and 20. 

All of the victims are expected to recover.

The armed suspect was apprehended after a short foot pursuit by officers who had responded to the area for a report of drug dealing.
