MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee officials have enacted a curfew and added extra patrols after 21 people were hurt in three shootings near a downtown area where thousands gathered for last night's NBA playoff game. Three people were injured in the first shooting, one in the second, and 17 in what police described as an exchange of gunfire between two groups of people. The shootings happened a few blocks from the arena where the Bucks lost to the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference semifinals. All of the victims are expected to survive. The curfew is for tonight and tomorrow night for those age 20 and younger.
UNDATED (AP) — The NHL is wrapping up the first round of the playoffs with a rare treat.
