MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee's 93rd murder victim of the year was killed in a gang-related shooting.
Police identified her Tuesday as 59-year-old Gloria Zuniga. She was slain when bullets sprayed her south side Milwaukee home on Monday night.
Police said the shooters targeted the house -- but they do not believe they intended to kill Zuniga.
Alderman Bob Donovan lives just two blocks away. He lashed out at what he called a "short-sighted approach to public safety," and he said Milwaukee needs a "definitive safety plan."
Still, the alderman hesitated to put blame on the Police Department. Donovan said violence is not normal in his neighborhood but the current tension is, "so thick you could cut it with a knife."
Milwaukee now has more murders in the first 10-and-a-half months of this year than in all of 2012. 90 people were killed in the city a year ago.
