Friends, family react after gunfire kills teen

MILWAUKEE - Friends and family returned to the scene where a young teen was part of a group that was ambushed Friday night.

Neighbor Ashley Johnson tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel she saw 14 year old Japhet Moore bleeding in the 29-hundred block of North 12th Street around midnight and rushed to help. She says when Moore tried to stand up, he fell over and died.

Mourners have laid teddy bears at the scene and planned to hold a memorial service later.

Moore had been standing with a group of people when shots rang out. Three others were also hit by gunfire. All three are expected to survive.
