Man charged in 10th and Keefe homicide

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police have released the criminal complaint in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Anthony Harris on Monday. Police have charged 20-year-old LC Hogan with one count of first-degree intentional homicide, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

The criminal complaint in the case says when interviewed by police, Hogan said he and Harris took Xanax and passed out, and when Hogan woke, he took a gun and began shooting, but doesn't explain why. Hogan said he wasn't trying to shoot Harris, but believes he shot him twice. Hogan says he was sitting on the couch, and stood up and shot Harris where he was standing, in the entrance way to the kitchen. Hogan then sat Harris down in the back stairwell, and called 911. The complaint says he took the two casings that were ejected from the gun and hid them in a shoebox, and hid the gun underneath the bed. He then texted the property owner with the words: "I shot Ace."

Police also interviewed a man who lives upstairs from Hogan and Harris, who says he was home with his wife the night before the shooting. He says he heard someone pounding on the doors of their residence between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. and says the pounding continued and became bothersome. The man says he believed someone may have been attempting to break in, and called police. The criminal complaint says police arrived and spoke with the man pounding on the doors, and a man in the residence. When police left, the two men began arguing, and the argument continued the next morning, according to this upstairs neighbor. The upstairs neighbor says he then heard three or four gunshots, and about 15 minutes later, police arrived.

Police interviewed a next door neighbor, who says she saw a person going from the front door of the residence to the back door, yelling "open the door." She said the police arrived just before 1:00 a.m. and she didn't hear any more commotion until the morning, when she heard gunshots.

The medical examiner performed an autopsy on Harris and determine he died from a single gunshot wound to the upper right chest.

If convicted on the homicide charge, Hogan faces life in prison, and if convicted on the possession of a firearm by a felon charge, he faces $25,000 in fines, and/or 10 years in prison.
