MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) Milwaukee Police have arrested five teens who were apparently in a group that committed dozens of robberies over the holiday weekend -- including one in which a robber was killed.
Police said a 15-year-old Milwaukee boy was one of four people who tried robbing a group early Monday just south of the city's downtown. One of the intended victims, a 30-year-old West Allis man, shot the 15-year-old to death. The shooter was released from custody yesterday, and was ordered to meet with the district attorney's staff later on possible charges.
Police have not said who was killed. They did say he had previous arrests for armed robbery, auto theft, and fleeing from officers. He was also wounded in another Milwaukee shooting incident on August 1st.
