Judge sentences Drakkar Lobley to 14 years in prison in shooting death of Michael Terry

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced 19-year-old Drakkar Lobley on Tuesday, December 2nd to 14 years in prison and another six years of extended supervision in the shooting death of Michael Terry in October 2013.

Lobley was initially charged with one count of first degree reckless homicide in the case. In court October 13th this year, an amended charge of second degree reckless homicide was filed against Lobley in exchange for his guilty plea.

Terry was found shot to death in the 2300 block of N. Hubbard Street on October 26, 2013.

Nearly a week later, Milwaukee police initiated a traffic stop in the area of 2500 block of N. Buffum Street — during which a .40 caliber firearm was located, according to the complaint. The complaint says the driver of the vehicle was arrested and charged for possession of that firearm.

The firearm was sent to the state’s Crime Lab for analysis. An examination of the four .40 caliber casings recovered from the homicide scene as well as the bullet recovered from Terry revealed they were fired from the .40 caliber firearm recovered during the traffic stop, according to the complaint.

Police interviewed the vehicle’s driver’s girlfriend, who said she and her boyfriend had pulled up to the scene of the homicide shortly after it occurred, and Lobley got into the vehicle — according to the criminal complaint against Lobley. The woman told police Lobley stated he had just been shooting the gun, according to the complaint.

The complaint against Lobley says police spoke with a juvenile witness, who said she was at a house party on N. Hubbard on the evening of the homicide. The witness told police the party was shut down because people were not getting along — and as people started leaving, she says she observed Lobley shoot two shots into the air.

The complaint says the juvenile witness saw someone in a silver vehicle fire shots toward Lobley. She says Lobley then fired multiple shots toward the silver vehicle as it drove away.
