MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are investigating three Labor Day shootings.

The first happened at 5:18 p.m. in the 2100 block of N Sherman Boulevard. Officers said a 59-year-old Milwaukee woman was accidentally hit by a bullet fired from about a half block away while she was sitting on her porch. 

The second happened at 7:10 p.m. in the 2600 block of N 60th Street. Officers said the suspects entered the victims residence and demanded money at gunpoint. When leaving, one of the suspects shot at the 37-year-old victim causing a minor graze wound.
