MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee police are continuing to investigate who shot and killed a 13-year-old girl on Sunday. Her younger sister was also shot, but has now returned from hospital.
Ten-year-old Shyier Wilson was shot several times while playing outside. She wants people to know her big sister, Shanaria Wilson, like she did: a kind girl who always wanted to protect her siblings.
“It’s not so good to be away from your sister because once she leaves you, she’s gone. She’s not coming back,” Wilson said. “Our favorite thing to do together was talk and hang out together.”

Only three years separate the siblings. They were playing near 5th and Rogers on the south side of Milwaukee, about to walk in and put on their pajamas, when they started to hear gunshots.
“I was walking in, they started shooting. There was already a person shooting them in the back, so that’s how I got shot here,” Wilson said. “The person who was in the car. I was shot right here because they were in front.”
Wilson spent a few days in the hospital and is holding her family close as she heals. Her mother hopes someone will hear their story and come forward.
“It would be nice if they surrendered. I just want my baby to get justice,” Vieta Caldwell said.
