Bo Morrison Vigil

SLINGER — A vigil was held Wednesday night, March 14th for a man shot to death by a homeowner in Slinger.

20-year-old Bo Morrison of West Bend was shot earlier this month by a homeowner. The man thought Morrison was trying to break into his home, but Morrison was actually trying to hide from police.

Morrison was at an underage drinking party in the same neighborhood.

Under Wisconsin’s Castle Doctrine law, a homeowner can use deadly force against someone unlawfully and forcibly entering his dwelling.

The homeowner cooperated with police, but Morrison’s family wants the man to be charged.
