Milwaukee gas station shooting; man pleads guilty, reckless homicide

A Milwaukee man has pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless homicide in a 2022 gas station shooting that killed a teen.

As part of a plea deal, a felony gun charge against 20-year-old Bruce Davis was dismissed. He is scheduled to be sentenced in October.

Davis was one of four men accused in the shooting near 7th and Keefe, which happened the morning of Nov. 1. Police used surveillance to identify all four men.

Case details

According to a criminal complaint, a witness told police he was with the 17-year-old boy who was killed in the shooting, and words were exchanged between them and some guys at the gas station. He said as they got back into his car, the group of men from the gas station immediately started to shoot at them – striking the 17-year-old.

Surveillance showed a red Kia arrived at the gas station and the above-mentioned witness went inside and got into an argument with five men who were already inside. When all the men left the gas station, the witness said he got into his Kia and began to drive away. At that time, the complaint said Dayquan Jenkins handed a firearm to Davis, who started shooting as the Kia pulled away. 

The video showed another man in a bright blue sweatshirt – later identified as Jahmichael Jordan – and Makaelon Bennett fire shots at the same time in the same direction, the complaint said.

Police found 41 spent bullet casings in the area. The victim died from three gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide.
