Man electrocuted during break-in attempt

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)   A Milwaukee man electrocuted while he was allegedly breaking into a north side tire shop has been identified as 38-year-old Devon Williams. The incident happened Monday morning at Greer Tire. Authorities said Williams was apparently cutting through copper-and-aluminum electrical wires that were attached to a security system. He was found partially hanging from the roof of the tire shop -- and officials said he might have been trying to steal copper inside. The shop is in an area where numerous thefts of copper wire have been reported.

Investigators believe a second person may also have been involved -- and that person might have fled after the electrocution.
