MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 16-year-old Milwaukee boy is due in court on Tuesday, after being charged in a home invasion in which a 21-year-old man was killed and his younger sister was injured.
Prosecutors said the 12-year-old girl was home alone when she answered the door and saw two males entered, including one of her neighbors. Police said one of the robbers held her at gunpoint while the other ransacked the house and stole jewelry, TV’s, a computer, and more.
The girl’s brother arrived home a short-time later, apparently not knowing that a robbery was in progress. He was beaten, and both residents were shot.
The girl survived but her brother, Daron Coleman-Lemmie, died 17 days after the November 9th incident.
Milwaukee Police said 16-year-old Lavarry Johnikin was an accomplice, and did not fire the shots – but he’s still charged as an adult with homicide, attempted homicide, robbery, and false imprisonment.
The shooter has not been arrested yet.
