Bucks cancels Deer District viewing party for Game 7

Deer District during the 2022 Milwaukee Bucks playoffs

The Milwaukee Bucks have canceled the Deer District Watch Party for Sunday’s 7th game in the series against the Boston Celtics.

The cancellation comes after three people were shot and injured right next to the market on Friday night, after match 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson issued a restricted restricted schedule for Saturday and Sunday evenings after a wave of gunfire left more than a dozen people injured in the downtown entertainment district, including 17 near Water and Juneau. The access ban, which takes effect at 11pm, is unlikely to affect Sunday afternoon’s crowds for the playoffs.

Milwaukee Bucks statement:

The shootings in downtown Milwaukee last night were horrific, and we condemn this devastating violence. We are grateful to the local law enforcement authorities for their courageous efforts to try to control the dangerous and fluid situation. While these incidents took place outside the Deer District property, they clearly resonated with fans leaving the arena and leaving the square. Safety, health and well-being are always our top priorities for our guests and employees, and we appreciate the hard work of our security team to keep our fans safe.

In order to allow law enforcement to allocate the necessary resources for the ongoing investigation of last night’s events, we have decided to cancel tomorrow’s planned viewing party on the market. Business in the Deer District will remain open as usual. We continue to work with the Milwaukee Police Department and other public safety partners to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our fans. We plan to have more details soon.
