Two people were shot and killed after a disturbance at a supermarket in Milwaukee on Saturday morning, July 9, authorities said. A vigil was held Sunday evening for the guard who died on the job.

The shootings took place at the El Rey on Cesar Chavez Drive. It is one of three Milwaukee locations for the Spanish supermarket.

According to police, the noise spread to the parking lot where a man and two guards exchanged shots. The man and one of the guards were killed and a bystander suffered minor injuries, police said.

Guard identified

The family of the guard who was killed identified him as Anthony Nolden, 59, known as “Uncle Tony.” His family said he loved working in this community, and based on what was said at the vigil Sunday night, the community loved him too.

As news spread of a shooting at the El Rey supermarket on Cesar Chavez Drive, NaTeisha Nolden reached for her phone.

“I immediately closed my Facebook. I called my uncle on Messenger. No answer. I text him. No answer. I call his phone. I’m still texting. No answer,” said NaTeisha Nolden.

Nolden’s “Uncle Tony” worked as a security guard at El Rey. He never called her back.

“It’s really heartbreaking that I can never talk to him again. No phone calls. No birthday cards, anything like that,” said NaTeisha Nolden.

Milwaukee Police said they were called to the store just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning where there was a gunfight between Anthony Nolden and a 36-year-old Milwaukee man. Both died.

“I’m angry. I’m not even going to lie. I’m angry,” said NaTeisha Nolden. “These weapons make no sense.”

NaTeisha Nolden spoke at her uncle’s wake on Sunday, exactly 23 years after the day she buried Anthony Nolden’s brother – her father.

“I feel a hole in my heart again, as if I’m repeating my father’s death after 23 years,” said NaTeisha Nolden.

She said her uncle intervened as a father figure when her father was shot and killed in 1999. Her grandmother’s only two sons have now both disappeared due to gun violence.

“I’m constantly looking out the window. Who’s going to be next?” said NaTeisha Nolden. “Who am I going to call next? Is it me? Another family member? A friend? It’s heartbreaking. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous.”

Police have not released any information as to why the 36-year-old Milwaukee man appeared in El Rey with a gun on Saturday morning.
