MILWAUKEE — Charges have been filed against 32-year-old Travoris Walton in the fatal shooting of Daniel Cabrices on Milwaukee’s south side June 7th.
Walton faces the following charges:
- Felony murder
- Possession of a firearm by a felon
According to the criminal complaint, Cabrices died after being shot near 15th and Grant early on that Tuesday. An autopsy indicated Cabrices suffered three gunshot wounds.
The complaint says during the investigation of this homicide, “police obtained surveillance video from the area of 15th and Lincoln.” That video apparently showed Cabrices walking with a woman with tattoos. Police were able to track down the woman — and interviewed her on June 28th.
The woman told police, according to the criminal complaint, that Walton (aka Boo) approached a man near 15th and Grant. He then “demanded the guy’s money and the guy said he would not give it to him. Boo then fired a warning shot and he shot again.” The complaint goes on to say “the guy was shot in the leg because the guy jumped and it looked like he grabbed his leg.” After the shooting, the complaint says “Boo gave the gun to another guy who was in Boo’s car.” That person along with “Boo” and the woman all ran away. Cabrices was found dead a short time later.
If convicted on the felony murder charge, Walton faces up to 35 years in prison. The second charge comes with a maximum ten years in prison and $25,000 in fines.
