Four people were fatally shot and 13 others were injured over the weekend in Milwaukee as summer gun violence in the city ramps up.

Violence prevention advocates have been working to defuse situations, mediate conflicts and distribute free gun locks.

Two of the four fatal shootings this weekend occurred on Milwaukee's east side.

On Saturday a 31-year-old man was fatally shot about 1:40 a.m. in the 1300 block of North Water Street, near the popular bar district, police said.

WTMJ-TV reported "seas of people" were gathered on Water Street on the warm night. Some ran from the area upon hearing gunshots.

About four hours later, Craig A. Nalls, 51, of Milwaukee was fatally shot in the 4700 block of North 37th Street in the Old North Milwaukee neighborhood, police said.
