 MILWAUKEE -- Two men were hit by gunfire while sitting in a car near 51st and Lisbon overnight. One of the men died, while another was badly hurt.

Meanwhile, police are still looking for the person who shot two children inside a van near 36th and Hadley earlier this week. Both children survived.

The violence is drawing a response from several churches in the area.

Volunteers participated in a "Stop the Violence Prayer Walk" near 23rd and Burleigh Saturday afternoon.
