20-year-old man dies from complications of gunshot wound suffered on April 23rd
MILWAUKEE -- Officials with the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office said on Wednesday, February 3rd a 20-year-old man died from complications of a gunshot wound suffered back on April 23rd, 2015 near Teutonia and Capitol Drive.
Following the shooting, the victim, who has been identified as Trevon Harris, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after shots were fired into his vehicle.
Precious Nicholson says she saw an SUV pull up alongside another vehicle at Teutonia and Capitol on April 23rd, and someone inside started shooting.
"Two cars pull up -- one of the cars, an SUV, just get to ringing shots out. Raise down his window and get to shooting at the other car. I guess he hit the other car because the car couldn't pull off in time. He pressed on the gas. He couldn't pull off his green light. He still there. Other SUV went down Capitol up to Sherman. The other car went too. Police told us the man got hit. There was a police car right behind the SUV and the car that was shooting. The police officer pulled down here by this yellow thing right here. I says 'you gotta turn around! They shooting! They shooting!' He says 'where?' I says 'right in front of you!' And then he looked and by the time he looked, the car was gone. Then he pulled around and pulled over. They wasn't yelling. Was no words. They pulled up to the lights and just got to shooting. No words. It was nothing. He just got to shooting," Precious Nicholson said.
Nicholson said she's fed up with all the violence we've seen in Milwaukee.
"We got babies out here! It's kids out here! I mean, come on now! Milwaukee is getting crazy. It's crazy. We can't even walk down the street without something happening. I can't work. I can't do nothing. Why? Cuz I'm scared for my life. It's sad. You can't even walk down the streets no more. There's babies out here dying for no reason. No reason at all. I'm scared. Milwaukee needs to do something about this," Nicholson said.
No further details have been released in this case.
