Ten people have been taken into custody after 17 were shot in Milwaukee Friday night near the Bucks-Celtics basketball game, police said Saturday.

Nine firearms were recovered from the scene, after dozens were seen fleeing, Milwaukee police said.

“Everyone started running,” Brittany Bergstrom, who was at a nearby restaurant, told FOX 6 in Milwaukee. “There was a stampede, people running over the shrubbery, hats, shoes on the ground, drinks spilled everywhere.”

She said her boyfriend pulled her behind a brick wall, “and if he didn’t have that result, it would be very different. And that’s all I know and everyone left in running and I kept running.”

Several fights were cut off at the end of the game, FOX 6 reported, but it’s unclear if any of the fights had anything to do with shooting.
