A shooting and car crash in Greenfield, and now, a Milwaukee man is charged

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- 19-year-old Daven Dodson of Milwaukee now faces multiple charges in connection with a fatal shooting and crash that happened near 27th and Cold Spring in Greenfield earlier this month.

Dodson is charged with the following: first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and possession of a firearm by a felon.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim in this case, 27-year-old Joel Dammann of Palmyra, had arranged to buy some heroin from Dodson. The complaint indicates the Dodson, Dammann and a third person arranged to do the exchange at a hotel on Layton Ave.

After the transaction, the complaint says Dammann pulled away from the hotel but Dodson apparently jumped in a car, caught up to Dammann shouting, "you only gave me $80." The complaint then says Dammann "tried some maneuvering to get away from (Dodson)" and "began getting shot at by the defendant's vehicle and eventually crashed."

Dammann died from a gunshot wound to the back of the head. A person riding with Dammann was not hurt.

Officers later arrested Dodson after getting a description of his vehicle from the person riding with Dammann.

If convicted, Dodson faces up to 60 years in prison.
