The city of Milwaukee was in jubilation over its NBA championship victory after winning Game 6 to take the title. The joy turned quickly into danger. Such was the case on Tuesday night following the Milwaukee Bucks’ championship-clinching victory in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns. Outside the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee where Giannis Antetokounmpo and company brought home the Larry O’Brien trophy, dozens of gunshots rung out in the streets surrounding the stadium, causing fans to run away from the scene in terror, according to NBC TIMJ4 NEWS.

The gunshots occurred just minutes after the game had wrapped up and celebrations were underway inside the stadium. Hundreds of fans began to flee to avoid further gunfire, and local reporters caught some of the aftermath on video.
