Milwaukee man faces homicide charges for 23nd and Melvina shooting

Curtis Hill

A 38-year-old Milwaukee man is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in connection to a shooting on March 1.

Prosecutors say Curtis Hill shot and killed a 24-year-old man and seriously injured a 19-year-old near 23rd and Melvina.

A criminal complaint states Hill approached an outdoor altercation involving the 24-year-old and other people. Multiple witnesses said Hill shot the 24-year-old multiple times; one witness said the shots were fired at point-blank range.

The 19-year-old told police he heard gunshots and turned to see Hill standing over the 24-year-old. He said he then ran, and Hill began shooting toward him and chasing him. He said Hill fired until the gun "clicked because it either ran out of ammo or malfunctioned."

An autopsy found the 24-year-old was shot once in the chest and once in the back, killing him.

Hill faces the following charges:

  • First-degree intentional homicide
  • Attempted first-degree intentional homicide
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon

He made an initial appearance in court on March 5.
