Ten people were 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,” witness Brittany Bergstrom, who was at a nearby restaurant, told FOX 6 in Milwaukee. “There was a stampede, people running into the bushes, hats, shoes on the ground, drinks spilled everywhere.”

She said her boyfriend pushed her behind a brick wall, “and if I hadn’t, this outcome would be very different. And that’s all I know and everyone ran away and I kept running.”
