The NBA's Milwaukee Bucks have canceled a scheduled watch party for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in response to three shootings Friday night that left over a dozen injured near the team's Milwaukee stadium.
"The shootings that happened in downtown Milwaukee last night were horrific and we condemn this devastating violence," the team said in a statement Saturday. "We are grateful to local law enforcement for its valiant efforts to try to contain what was a dangerous and fluid situation. While these incidents took place outside of Deer District property, it clearly resonated with fans coming out of the arena and leaving the plaza. Security, health and welfare are always our top priorities for our guests and employees and we appreciate the hard work of our security team to keep our fans safe."

The statement continued, "In order to allow law enforcement to devote needed resources to the continued investigation of last night’s events, we have decided to cancel tomorrow’s planned watch party on the plaza. Deer District businesses will remain open as usual. We continue to work with the Milwaukee Police Department and other public safety partners to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our fans. We plan to have further details soon."
