18-year-old charged with double homicide, robbery in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - An 18-year-old Milwaukee man was charged Thursday in the shooting deaths of two men during a robbery.

Richard Littlejohn Jr. faces two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

Prosecutors said he went to a north side Milwaukee apartment on April 21st, where he allegedly killed 34-year-old Willie Shankle and 32-year-old Darius Parker.

Investigators said Shankle talked about buying a gun -- and Littlejohn then pulled a .22-caliber handgun and shot Shankle 6 times and shot Parker 4 times. Officials said Littlejohn then stole money from Shankle's pockets and ran away.

Prosecutors said 60-year-old Kenneth Wright then drove Littlejohn away from the murder scene. Wright is charged with aiding and harboring a felon, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
