Milwaukee County prosecutors said Wednesday that a 39-year-old Cudahy man will not be charged in the shooting deaths of two teens in Milwaukee on March 12th. Jeremy Rossetto was about to change out fire extinguishers in a west side Milwaukee apartment building when he allegedly got into a verbal confrontation with three young people: 19-year-old James Bell, 17-year-old Anmarie Miller and 20-year-old Clarence Alls.
Police reports said that one of the three held Rossetto, while two others struck him with a souvenir baseball bat. The maintenance worker then pulled a gun, shooting and killing Bell and Miller. Rossetto’s lawyer said earlier that his client had a permit to carry his concealed weapon, claiming it was an “occupational necessity” to do so.
Rossetto was jailed after the shooting on possible homicide charges, while Alls was jailed on possible battery charges. Prosecutors are still reviewing the case against Alls and have not made a charging decision, although Rossetto’s attorney said it was his understanding that Alls would not be charged.
