MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - One of 2 men shot to death outside a Milwaukee tavern last month managed to grab some hair from 1 of the 2 alleged assailants. And the DNA from those hairs could provide the evidence for a homicide charge. In a search warrant affidavit, police said the hair came from a 20-year-old man who’s being held. He and a 24-year-old man are suspected in the shooting deaths of 47-year-old Salvador Chavarin and 20-year-old Benjamin Nunez.
They were shot outside Milwaukee’s Club Carona on January 23rd, as the result of an apparent fight in the parking lot. Police said the assailants tried to knock the victims unconscious – but that didn’t work, so Chavarin and Nunez were eventually shot. Hair was found in Chavarin’s right hand during an autopsy – and the hair was analyzed at the State Crime Lab. The 24-year-old assailant was still being sought at last word. Police believe he may have tried to flee to Mexico.
