Milwaukee Police have arrested five teens who they say were part of a group that committed dozens of robberies over the holiday weekend; including one in which a robber was killed.
Police said a 15-year-old Milwaukee boy was one of four people who tried robbing a group early Monday just south of the city’s downtown. One of the intended victims, a 30-year-old West Allis man, shot the 15-year-old to death. The shooter was released from custody Tuesday and was ordered to meet with the district attorney’s staff later on possible charges.
Police have not released the identity of the person who was shot. They did say he had previous arrests for armed robbery, auto theft, and fleeing from officers. He was also wounded in another Milwaukee shooting incident on August first.
