As the crime spree continued, the crew became more and more brazen. Around 5:30 in the morning they targeted the wrong man.
Four members of the robbery crew, including a 16-year-old, approached the man. During the attempted robbery, the man drew his concealed handgun and opened fire, striking the 16-year-old in the chest and killing him.
According to Captain Aaron Raap of the Milwaukee Police Department,
"At this point the police department believes that the suspects involved in that robbery and the now deceased person were involved in other robberies across our city and overnight"
Captain Raap said police have good leads on the members of the robbery crew and several have been arrested already.
